That lineup isn't going to scare anyone. I really hope Poile adds a forward by the time the season rolls around. If we have this lineup come november, I don't see how we can be above 10th in the west.

My top choices would be Andrei Kos or Bryan Little. Pipe dream Parise

I have to question your line of thought. Our line up last season was even worse and we were excited because it was a good deep group of forwards.

Now we have young guys who actually proved themselves and could get better. It is really just ignorant to not see how we finish above 10th with this line up in November when we finished in 5th last year with essentially the same thing only older and full of injuries. Plus there was a transition to a new leadership of Legwand and Erat when Sully got hurt, I don't think it was a coincidence that is when the team rose in the standings.

While adding a good forward would add us to the cup contender talk, I am not incredibly worried about it.
