If we can get those three elements in our top six, then we could live with a Talbot or Dupuis or Cooke to round it out. Something like this...
Talbot-Crosby-winger acquired via UFA
Caputi-Malkin-winger acquired by trading Whitney
trade Eaton and Dupuis for cap purposes for anything we can get.
Could happen, but you are banking on UFA. In which we got really nothing too great last year. We could end up with another winger that our coach likes to throw on the 4th line here and there for not producing.
I would say we NEED picks/prospects and wingers.
Eaton/Dupuis for Prospects/Picks is a given.
