It's great to see Shero finally address our scoring issues on the wing. In a lot of ways, the Crosby and Malkin injuries probably forced Shero's hands to make a move. I don't think he realized how bad our secondary scoring options were until he was subjected to watching all of these brutal games.

Plus take into account the $$$ they should have available this summer to address one more top 6 wing. They should conceivably head into 2011-12 with 3 legit NHL Top 6 guys and a younger guy like Jeffrey, Tangradi or perhaps Johnson in the mix for the other spot. Add that to the center depth, top 4 defense and a top 5 goalie and that's a pretty well rounded squad.
