i understand the "win now" mentality and we might actually end up doing that but temper your excitement by realizing anything we "spend" in assets (picks, prospects) to get that top six winger (likely on an expiring contract) will be that much less we have to spend for next season. If lats is still gone at that point then he likely won't be re-signed. the guy we pick up will likely be no sure thing either (he's a rental). So we fill that space with...Coyle or Bulmer or someone and we have multiple spots open for rookies who may or may not work as well as we hope BUT our pool is suddenly very depleated. I'm guessing we'd get a top six winger from a non playoff team looking to rebuild, so I would imagine they'd take up to two prospects along with a pick. Larsson and Zucker, lets say.
I'm fine with rolling with what we have this year (even with Lats out) because if we're still in the playoff picture at the deadline Yeo's system is still working (without Lats) and I don't want to hurt our chances in the future, when most of us were expecting to have a strong team for years with our great prospects.
