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
Many posters don't want an extra year of development for Weber (AKA Woe-ber), at least not on the Habs. We've seen his defensive limitations and he's not that great on what was supposed to be his forte, the power play. Every time we see him on the point we cross our fingers. Every time a defending forward sees him there he salivates.
