Could we trade for Gagner or Eberle? (Discuss all trades here, if you must)

You are looking at this with extremely rose colored glasses.
I am happy we played so well and advanced so far.
But while this team has superior D and exceptional G, we are not balanced and need more at F.
This team was very, very close to being eliminated in 2 rounds of post season.
We benefit from shoot outs.
And we deserved the home ice for putting out such effort all year.
But we could not close these series fast enough, so we were exhausted.
This is on top of the fact that Torts is wrong and should go.
So in short, we need more/better 'horses' to win this race.
Also, we were very, very lucky Pens imploded. That will not happen every year.
While we barely bested the Sens (Spezza +) and Caps (Ovechkin. Backstrom/Semin)
we were beaten by a team w/more sniper firepower (Kovy, Parise) even though they were shut down, we couldn't outscore other lines. Staal + Girardi should not be top scorers for us. Except for Cally, there was a lack of show up by Richards, Gaborik and Stepan.
That's why. We improve or accept our fate.
