That said, no matter how much people think this team is deep at forward on defense we still need to go out and try to make this team better. if you have that opportunity without overpaying you do it.
Zherdev is not going to help IMO, it takes lines who are willing to compete every shift and be physical much like LA did. They do not have the scoring depth but they were able to play a solid game and create good chances off of just being a more physical team.

The achilles heel of this team is that people think they are the deepest scoring threat in the NHL, but the problem is if they are not scoring what else do they provide? At least the HBL line can dominate a shift in the offensive zone and create chances off of their cycle or get a PP chance off of the effort.
