The 2 big holes as I see it:

We need a couple top 6 guys badly, not super stars, but 60 point type guys that can score 20+ goals consistently. I do not think Yakupov qualifies in this capacity in 2012-2013...do they even know the extent of his last concussion? Atkinson? maybe, if he starts finding the back of the net. In any case we need to go get some scoring talent.

We need a goalie (or we roll the dice on Mason again next season).
We tried this.
Remember RJ, Vermette, Huselius, tyutin and Carter?

What's the common denominator?

Including lack of dependable goaltending, I think it's was a perfect storm of weak leadership on and off the ice. But look at StL, such leadership can be there, just lying dormant.

Which to me means acquiring guys who bring it every game, not guys who flash then disappear (Verm/Commie/Juice and rooks).
