Go get another center to serve as the number 1 and have RyJo on the second line. Brass on the third.
Hopefully we can get someone like Couture for Nash. Couture-Johan-Brass is solid down the center. Ideally we could sign a Stoll type and trade Brass. Sign some shutdown D and Trade Methot. Trading Brass and Methot could give us other pieces to fill in holes in the top 9 and draft picks in 2013 suffer another year (like we really expect anything different
) and draft a few first round picks (at least ours and LA's).
By 2014 we have Couture and JMFJ entering their prime and a developed Johan, Murray, and Atkinson, and possibly guys like Mackinnon or Jones in the wings. We're ready to compete in 2 years at a high level not just hoping we can make the playoffs.
