Both Upshall and Fiddler I can get behind, but some more bodies will need to be moved out.

I'd look at Upshall if we can't get both Jones or Reddox back under contract, all three bring a similar role, energy players who'll do anything for the team to win, even if they don't have high end talent or shutdown ability.

Fiddler, I'll admit I'm not as high on, we need a strong 2 way third liner vs. a stone hands 4th liner that can do great work on the PK. Goc, Handzus, Belanger, even Reasoner would be higher on my shopping list.

My main target would be a Joel Ward in Nashville. 30 age old, has good size (6'1, 220), can skate well, and is 3rd in on the Preds in terms of SHTOI/G. Plus he's RH, so he adds to a part were the team's weak in: Beyond McDonald (who isn't even signed currently), who do the Oil have that can play in a bottom six shutdown role?
