I've been saying it all along. Without a doubt IF we get Richards his wingers should be Dubinsky and Callahan. They most closely resemble his wingers in Dallas of Ericksson and Neal. Gaborik SHOULD NOT be his winger. He should be on a 2nd line with Stepan and AA should be on a 3rd with Boyle as the LW and Feds as the Right. AA taking on a Jordan Staal type role for NYR. We have wingers for Richards, what we need is a winger for Gaborik and Colorado has just the guy. He's fast, he plays wing, he's a UFA, and he's a playmaking winger.

Otherwise we need to make a deal for a high powered winger and there are two teams moving players making them available. We just have to be willing to move a top4 defenseman like Dan Girardi, which sting like alcohol on a wound, but would be worth it to get a guy like Martin Havlat and to a much riskier extent, Ales Hemsky.

Dubi - Richards - Cally
LW - Stepan - Gaborik
Boyle - AA - Feds
Avery - ? - Prust

2 line offensive power - teams can't shutdown two lines.
