If not, just acquire a RW at the deadline.
i'm ok with stop gaps like Whitney or even 2yr with Doan, because of the type of players they are. however i just don't like these guys coming off substantial injuries. just setting yourself up for trouble.

I'd rather they address top six needs through either Parise* or Semin, or through a trade. I want to try to get real top line players
first if possible.
