I think we have two needs at the moment:
- A top-4 defenceman with size, toughness, and adequate defensive ability. I'm happy with Markov, Subban, and Gorges getting top 4 minutes... but I don't feel comfortable with Spacek, Gill, Diaz, Emelin, Campoli or Weber playing top 4 minutes on a consistent basis at the moment. We're just too soft on defence and we need a bigger, tougher d-man taking big minutes. Maybe Emelin is this guy but he's not ready.
- A 4th line grinder that is tough to play against... skates well, hits hard, wins battles along the boards, blocks shots, kills penalties, drives to the net hard, and who is tough enough to win a fight. In other words, we need somebody to take some pressure off of Moen. I really believe that Moen will become more effective if we get somebody to support him a bit more in his role. Do we have this in White or Blunden? I'm not sure.
