Gionta and Gomez are the biggest question marks. If Gomez is bought out he can be easily replaced from the farm but if Gionta is moved we will really need a top 6 winger. I don't think it is that big of a deal. UFA's care more about joining a winning team than anything else, if we start competing than everything else will be forgotten.
This team has 1 true top 6 center, and 2 true top 4 defencemen.

I would hope that our first rounder this year would fill the centre spot, because realistically, there is nothing on the farm that fills that spot (i realize it will take a couple years for them to develop).

On Defence we hope that Markov will be healthy and that will fill one of the top 4 D spots.

So we need to sign a defenceman.... someone who is big, and mean, and can play against teams who cycle in our zone endlessly.... would be ideal.
