Any chance we get two of them? I don't think any one of them is the solution by themselves, but if we could get Laich and one of Gagne or Leino it would be huge.

That's pretty sick imo. Losing Raffi's physical play in the top 9 hurts but Laich is no powder puff and is a much better player.
I threw Eager in their because I think we'd definitely need some meat that can play with that lineup.
I liked someone else's suggestion that Shirokov may take less NHL money on a one way deal. He takes Tambi's spot as the 13th forward and gets a chance to get picked up by another team if he's put on waivers or makes big cake in the AHL.
I'd be fine giving Gagne whatever we have left for one year. Or we could probably get Leino on a three year deal at around that number.
I think we need to work Raymonds injury like we did with Sami. It's a devastating injury that might take him a long time to fully recover from. I don't think holding his spot in the lineup is the best thing for this team.
