Maybe Shero would add a #7 depth defenceman, but short of a couple wingers his roster is complete.

Other teams have different needs. WSH, CAR, NYR need a centre. BOS and DAL need a PMD. TBL, COL, and ANA need D. PHX and NSH need scoring. PHL might want a goalie. I don't know enough to say about DET, VAN, CHI, and MTL.

So the Shero is probably bidding against 2-4 GMs that have a more general need for scoring then a specific need for a winger.
