On the UFA market get a big second/third line winger that can be usefull in the top 9 like Moss/Penner/Ruutu/Stoll/Jones. Then get a physical fourth liner that can play hockey, the pk, be physical and even can fight in guys like McLeod/Prust/Thornton/Kostopoulos. To replace Gill on the PK and bring a Dman with size that is playing a more physical brand of hockey and play a bigger I think Allen could be that guy.
That's a nice mix of skill, size and grit. That team could be ready to go to war.
We would have the money to offer Ruutu up to 4.5M, I'd get Tim Gleason maybe over Allen, but who you get I'd pair them with Subban.
I'd go with as the top 9, thats really 3, "2nd lines"
And on D, i'd put go with, to balance it into 3 "2nd pairings" also
With a lineup like that, if we stay healthy, I think that is a contending team no doubt.
I love the idea with Ruutu because he can play centre, so in-case in the playoffs, you don't like DD playing Centre, you can switch him with Ruutu (even though there is no reason to doubt DD).
