Of course there might be better UFA options, question is just wether we are able to attract them.

In case we move Hemsky or Penner (which I would absolutely do: we won't be able to keep all our wingers in the future and the market is so hot this year that we could garner a maximum return) he would be a great pick-up, as he could play top6 or also 3rd line if Pääjärvi or Omark show that they can handle that.

And even if we don't trade Penner or Hemsky, he would be a hell of a pick-up for our fourth line:

Penner - Gagner - Hemsky
Hall - Horcoff - Eberle
Pääjärvi - Lander - Omark
Hagman - Cogliano - Jones

And voila, we would have 3 offensive lines for our rookie talent as well as a shutdown line to put out against other teams top lines that can also score.

I must remind people that we play in the Western conference. That team is so soft and weak. We would get crushed. If it was no contact then I would agree with you. Also which line is our shutdown line?
