We need offense in general (from our forwards) as much as we need a a centreman presently IMO, as Hecht's return will help our pivot situation for the time being. Stafford is not scoring & Ennis is not playing - and we are losing close games (ie: Boston last night). A guy like Ryan, or Iggy for example would help us out greatly in that department. One guy getting 60-70 pts. instead of needing 2-3 guys to produce the same amount as we currently do (3 balanced "scoring" lines). Any contribution from the 3rd line (checking/scoring line) after that would just gravy.
We are also in need of a defensive, shot-blocking d-man for the back-end to trim the SOG (avg'ing approx 30/game) down a bit as Ehrhoff, Leo, Grags & Sekera (<- to a lesser degree) are not shut-down guys & do not play the style of defense needed.
A guy like Toni Lydman, Andrew MacDonald, Brad Stuart, or even Greg Zanon could likely be had for a fair price (would love Volch or Orpik, but let's be realistic...) & would benefit this team's defense & our goaltenders greatly.
