I think they'll try to do this, but it's easier said than done. I see them making a move for a solid 50-60 point winger that will cost a decent asset or two and then taking a flier on another winger that's having a so-so year. I could see them going to the Florida Panthers for the so-so winger. Maybe a guy like Higgins or Stillman or if they're really desperate and have enough cap space left they could call Ottawa about Kovy.
