Point taken though...
I am actually of the belief that you CAN have too much veteran leadership...if it means you're not quick enough to compete with the fastest teams in the East. Look at Carolina this season. Does anyone have more experience? Nope.

I am not saying adding a Tkachuk would turn us into a lottery team, but what I'm saying is we have enough experience, Cup winners, grit, pugnacity, playoff-proven and playoff-ready performers on this team.

We need some kill on the wings.
