Bozak + 30 pick should be enough considering it's cap related in San Jose's case.

I know that a Richards, Grabovski, Pavelski down the middle is darn good

Kessel - Richards - Lupul

Mac?/Kadri - Grabo - Kulemin

Armstrong - Pavelski - Kadri/Frattin

I like the look of this top 9
Now that looks like a playoff team. Pavelski is exactly the player we would love to have, but only if we fix our number1 center issue first. If we sign richards great, then we can possibly go after Statsny/Pavelski. However if we don't get Richards, we have to go get Statsny to make sure we find our number1 center. Despite all of that, I'm still happy with taking it slow and seeing what Colbourne can do. Here's hoping for the latter.
