With the signing of schultz, I think we can actually have a balanced (if inexperienced) lineup next year without actually signing anyone. Look:

Yakupov-RNH-Eberle
Hall-Gagner-Hemsky
Paajarvi-Horcoff-Jones
Hartikainen-Belanger-Petrell
Eager

Whitney-Smid
Schultz-Petry
Sutton-Schultz
Potter

Dubnyk
Khabibulin

Hall is there to carry the second line, Hemmer and Gagner need help with puck retrieval and need a shooter. Obviously I think Yak would be amazing in that position, there is already talk from Krueger about playing the left wing (he shoots left anyway).

Paajarvi can be molded into an elite checking player with 2nd line offense hopefully one day. I think he's ready for the NHL now.

At this point, is Smyth just taking icetime away from the younguns? I wonder.
