Well, at least make us legit playoff threats next season, and hopefully true contenders by the season after. Picture this lineup:

Heatley-Koivu-Bouchard
Setoguchi-Carter-Granlund
Bulmer-Cullen-Clutterbuck
Johnson-Powe-[plug forward, maybe McIntyre?]
Kassian

Suter-Brodin
Scandella-Spurgeon
Schultz-Prosser
Falk

Backstrom
Hackett

While not the most imposing top line, the second line would be well above average and that's a great bottom 6. With a better than servicable defense, that should be enough to finish 4th-6th in the west.

or we can get parise w/ou giving up 1st + other assets have a guy who would want to come here and is buddies with suter

parise-koivu-butch

cully-granlund-heater

clutter-brodz/larsson/coyle-bulmer

powe-mcmillan-johnson


suter-brodin

scandy-spurgie

prosser-falk

stoner

and still draft a highish end d
