We need a lot more than Henrik Lundqvist to make this a legitimate team.

First off, we need legitimate top-6 talent. Not Boyle, Fedotenko, Prust, Christensen, Avery, or even Dubinsky / Callahan. Dubinsky and Callahan are great, definitely players you need to win a Cup, but they cannot be your corner stone players.

During the off season we need to acquire a legitimate first line center (no, not Stepan, a legitimate star center), a legitimate offensive puck moving defense man at least Streit caliber (and no, not Del Zotto), and another legitimate top-6 forward. The only legitimate top-6 talent we have are Gaborik, Dubinsky, Callahan and Prospal (and Prospal will be 37 next year). We need at least another two high quality forwards, one being a star center.
I want to see Del Zotto next year but I agree we need to improve
