I like our goaltending, our 1st, 3rd and 4th lines and the defense for the most part. We have elite players but as a group nowhere do we have elite talent on a line or pairing that would rival any other team in the league, and that's fine. The 2nd line is concerning. I do not think we need to sign a Hossa/Sundin type, nor do I feel anyone here wants us to go out and overpay for 2nd line scoring help, but it would be nice to upgrade our 2nd line scoring ability to take the pressure off of Iginla and Phaneuf. Lombardi is a good 2nd line centre and Boyd could be a good 2nd liner as early as this year, but I still think we need an Andrew Brunette type player at a reasonable contract to push this team over the top. If we sign Nolan to a good deal, that's fine but secondary scoring may again become a problem later in the year. And if it does, I expect Sutter to address the issue.
