I think that type of player will compliment and mesh well with JR, just like what we saw when JR and Tkachuk were teammates in Phoenix.

I would think that a more pressing need is a top 4 defenseman that would push Weaver down to the #7 spot (with the Kings moving Dempsey).

I agree. We do have to our advantage a strong group of young talent. It wouldn't kill us to move picks.
Some vet forwards that could help in the playoffs;
Gary Roberts, Wes Walz, Mellanby, Drake and even Barnaby

Some Dmen that may be avaliable;
Sean Hill, Adam Foote, Salvador, Weinrich and de Vries

I'm not great at this type of thing. Most of these guys are older and cost mucho, but they can help the fianl month and into the playoffs imo.
