They need a top six forward with at least 25 goals ability (What Cammalleri should have been, What cyBorque probably won't be), a tough defenceman, a veteran bottom six forward with grit and toughness.
A clean slate with a fresh season, healthy captains (Markov and Gionta) and continued development of young players (Price, Pacioretty, Subban, Desharnais, Eller, Busto) surrounded by good veterans (Gorges, Cole, Moen, etc). The skelton is there, a new GM just needs to build around it.
The team isn't great, but they're not as bad as last place in the East. It's a 6th-8th place team that was rocked by some unfortunate circumstances, which have a tendency to snowball into massive amounts of craziness in our hockey mad town. They'll make the playoffs next year, and hopefully this season will be looked back at as one where they added a handful of nice prospects as well as a learning curve for the talented young players on the team.
