He will have a lot of flexibility to make upgrades over the summer and I do expect Sutter to bring in a new staff along with him, with the possibility of Stevens and/or Ranford staying on board.

The possibility of moving Greene and looking for someone like Suter is interesting, one I hadn't considered.

My guess is that Carter's acquisition rules out (in Lombardi's mind) a push for Parise, and that he'll instead look to upgrade the third-line center position. The big question, I think, is if he wants to bring Stoll back. A lot hinges on that decision, and I can see arguments both ways.
