Where do we go from here?

While I agree with a few line of thoughts here, I think its most likely we shore up the 3-4 defensemen slots this year, pushing MAB and Kubina further down the depth chart. Clark and Gilroy are ok as 5-6, MAB as PP specialist 7th. Brewer is ideally slotted #3 in a good defense and now that it looks like Ohlund isn't coming back anytime soon, we need someone else to play with Brewer.
Suter would be best case scenario but Nashville has the cash to resign him and Weber, but not much else after that. He would be your immediate #1 and Hedman #2.
We need more mobile, stick checking type defensemen to play this system. The heavy footed Kubina's, Ohlund's, and in retrospect Smaby do not fit this year.
If we could flip Purcell and/or Downie and Garon for Schneider, I'd do it in a heartbeat, as it also creates room for Connolly/Ashton on scoring lines next year.
We still have a shot to complete this year, as last years team seemed to click after the trading deadline. No need to blow up the ship, but need adequate injury replacements for Kubina and Ohlund.
I'd give Turco a shot too, at least he can assist in clearing the defensive zone.
