What One Forward Would Make The Biggest Difference?

You look at the Leafs group of forwards, and its pretty obvious that they suck. What I think is less obvious though is a good way to fix them. This thread is about your ideas for the Leafs to acquire ONE semi-realstic (no iginla/ovechkin crap) forward which on his own would make our forward group competitive.


Hagman-Stajan-Stempniak
Ponikarovsky-Grabovski-Kulemin
Tlusty-Mitchell-Blake
Mayers-Primeau-Orr
Wallin


The key is that you must keep in mind our depth chart and not include players who would need an accompanying trade to be effective (e.g. Kessel wouldn't be a good fit without a playmaking centre).


My Reccomendation: The most bang for our buck would come from moving Stajan to 3rd line from first. The guy that I think could be had for the right price would be Patrice Bergeron; and if he can regain his form, he should be able to get better production out of a guy like Lee Stempniak.
