I honestly think I would put the needs in that order.
Agreed. This has been beaten to death, but I think our lack of scoring depth is also an important issue. Probably more important than bringing in a superstar. If we could grab one or two thirty goal scorers in free agency and maybe gain another twenty goal guy from within (Grachev, Avery, Drury?), I think we are better off than bringing in 50 goals of Kovalchuk. Because with his cap hit, we won't have any space at all to bring in scoring depth. We'd be in basically the same position as this year.

But 2 and 3 are some things that we absolutely need before we can be a legitimate team.
