You're the GM! How do you build the Habs for next season?

Hannan's best days are way behind him imo. He was solid in the old rules, but I can't see it now. I do agree that we are missing a warrior to pair with our skilled D tho, and Jackman very well could be the guy tho he's undersized for the game he plays.
I'm not a Clowe fan. I lived in Norcal for a long time and I know the Sharks very well. Clowe is extremely inconsistent, mostly because he is as slow as molasses. In a playoff round, he can be effective on the boards, but can also be passive. Not sure he helps us against Chara, so I would opt for size WITH speed like we've been doing.
You don't address our goalscoring issues either. We need some guys who can put the puck in the net!
I would also start looking at players that have performed well in recent playoffs who might be available, like Jarret Stoll for instance. He's a big body hustler. If he's your third line center, you might be a contendah.
How would Bourque be in the press box in LA while they have guys like Penner on the 2nd line?
Check Bourque's career stats in Calgary, I don't think there are any NHL teams he couldn't crack.
