This team desperately needs a guy like Hamhuis or Beauchemin or Robidas, a low-maintenance guy who can gobble up minutes with solid positional play and only the occasional mistake. Klein has shown that he can't be relied on to be that kind of player for us, but we frankly cannot allow Bouillon to keep getting as much time as he does, or play Hillen on a nightly basis period, and expect to go anywhere.

Robidas isn't going to be available, though, because Dallas are leading the Pacific, and even if they fall out of that spot, they'll still be right in the thick of the playoff race and won't be inclined to trade away their TOI leader. We might have to offer something really good to get Beauchemin out of Anaheim, even on an expiring contract, but he's the guy I really want us to go after in free agency, the kind of player that Trotz wants Bouillon to be. We can play him while Blum and Ellis and Josi and Ekholm all finish cooking over the next 2-3 years.
