The trouble with getting that elite forward that would open up space for the rest of the team, including Weber, is where do we find the money to get the goal scorer, keep Weber, sign Suter to keep Weber effective (Suter might be just as important to this as an elite goal scorer), and keep Rinne?
Now if we can't do all of those things, in what order do we begin letting players walk? In my opinion the best way to go about it is make sure Blum is the real deal. If he can step into Suter's role then I think you keep Weber, let Suter walk, and use that money to keep Rinne. If the organization is comfortable with Lindback and Dekanich going forward do you trade Rinne? I guess that would depend on the goalie market at the deadline, and our position in the standings. Also Lindback is only 23. Goalies tend to take longer to develop.
It's fun to think about, but there are so many things to look at before acquiring an elite forward.
