If we could get a combo of Lombardi and Nash or a combo of Stoll and Gaborik Id be happy. Dont get me wrong I like both Lombardi and Stoll Im just not sold that either one alone would address our issues. We need someone who can be dynamic offensively but also fit into Tippetts system. Weve seen guys like Mueller, Turris, Wolski who think just because they can be good offensively that they dont have to play defense or work hard.

Gaborik-Vermette-Doan
Whitney-Hanzal-Vrbata
Boedker-Stoll-Korpikoski
Torres-Gordon-Pyatt/Chip

or

Boedker-Vermette-Nash
Whitney-Hanzal-Vrbata
Korpi-Lombardi-Doan
Torres-Gordon-Pyatt/Chip
