I'd like to see Gaborik on a short contract. I don't see Hossa ever coming here. For the most part, I'd like DL to continue to fill the holes from within and see if any of Lewis, Clune, Boyle, Hickey or Drewiske can stick next year. The main need is a scoring forward. My hunch is that DL adds this through a trade and the guy we get is not a tier 1 player. I think the lack of toughness issue is a bit overblown. But it'd be nice to stratch Ivanans on most nights and dress someone with grit who can actually play. So an upgrade there would be great.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting any of those guys just throwing their names out there. Like the majority I think the Kings have to make a serious run at Gaborik, Hossa or Havlat. I'd be happy with Mike Knuble and Lappy. Those 2 guys seem to be the obvious choices after the big guns go to other teams.
