Defending Big D brought up a good point ... instead of trading Steve Ott for a center (Heika said he thought that's what the team was looking for) ... why not just finally commit to Ott at center for right now? Save your money instead of paying for Gaustad or McClement in free agency. Ott's value right now and at the trade deadline should still be similar. If he establishes himself as a capable center ... it could go up.

Sign a guy like Mikael Samuelsson to a 1 or 2 year contract to play with Vincour and Ott.

Vincour-Ott-Samuelsson

Or ... maybe go ahead and spend a bit more. Travis Moen is one of the top checking forwards available. He probably won't get a long contract either.

Moen-Ott-Vincour would definitely seem like an improvement over Nystrom-Fiddler-Dvorak.
