Rupp - Boyle - Prust

Girardi - McD

Suter - Sauer

Eminger - MDZ

Once Staal returns:

Staal - Girardi

Suter - Sauer

McD - MDZ (or whoever)

Now that's a decent "D"...

No way should Staal get 2st pairing minutes ahead of Suter. Also, our forwards look like garbage. Hagelin on the 2nd line? Yikes. MZA? He deserves a shot but unproven. And the bottom 2 lines are terrible. As shaky as our D has been, our main problem (still and has been for years) has been lack of skill.

If we make any trades I want it for a cheap defenseman or serious offensive upgrade. I would look at Krecji, Eriksson, Bourque, somewhere along those lines. We need offense. When Staal comes back the d will be fine.

I say all prospects are up for grabs here too (in the right deal). Signing Brad and having Hank in his prime is win now mode. I just hope the office realizes this too. If a Kreider or Thomas is the difference between getting a Loui Eriksson or [insert veteran rental], I think you bite the bullet and do it. We're only 2-3 pieces away IMO.

For Suter, I go after him in UFA. No need to mortgage our offense for the year to get him.
