Cole or Antropov would be perfect alongside Legwand and Erat. Kotalik might be a good fit alongside Arnott and Dumont, if the price is right. If we re-sign Sullivan, though, I'd still like to see Kotalik add a little skill and speed to the third line, even if it's at the expense of grit.

We also need a third line center. Ever since the Worlds, Poile has gotten less confident in Wilson's ability to play at the NHL level immediately. O'Reilly struggled when separated from Sullivan, so he may still need more time. Adding a 40 point player to center our third line is a must. A lack of secondary scoring killed us last year, and that's a great way to remedy that problem. Reinprecht would have been ideal if Florida hadn't already signed him.

We'll still need a top four blue liner unless the team is really sold on Blum to make the team out of camp. Oduya went off the market today, so the best candidate may be someone like Jaro Spacek, who can be had for relatively little money on a one or two year deal. I don't see us signing any defenseman to a longer term deal. Blum should be ready by the end of next year at the latest.
