The number 1 thing I want Ottawa to solidify is their defense. Our offense seems set at times plus, with the Swede prospects coming in next year, I think it will fill in the blanks by itself. By next year I want Ottawa to try to close out the remaining pieces of their defense for long term. That includes:

Re-signing Karlsson long-term
Nabbing a guy like Gorges for the foreseeable future.

Cowen-Karlsson
Phillips-Gorges
Boroweicki-Gonchar

That's a playoff defense. Over a couple of years, it would become a contending defense. When Gonchar and Phillips age, it's much easier to fill in the holes through UFA for number 3 or 4 defense man than it is for top 6 forwards. Especially if we get a guy like Ceci via draft.

It pains be to see Rundblad not there because I still think that he would have made us deadlier than Turris is gonna make us. I pray that I'm wrong and Turris gets his game together.
