Someone mentioned Jackman. If he were a UFA in July, I'd be all over him. He'd really shore up the blueline, also Brad Stuart, Bryan Allen, Cory Sarich, Shaone Morrisonn and of course Suter. Any of those guys would help defensively.

As for the LW situation, Shane Doan, Semin, Kostitsyn, all could be available, and would help.

two players added, the Defense will be improved (also thanks to the extra year of development for Emelin/Diaz/Weber/Subban) and the secondary scoring would actually happen because there would be a 2nd line (which we didn't have this year) and the production on the PP HAS to get better, there is no way it could be that awful without some bad luck. Even a marginal % increase of 7% = 22 more PP goals that could have tipped our playoff fortunes around
