You know, the more I think about it, the more I think we don't desperately need to go sign some sniper.

Gaborik
Richards
Stepan
Callahan
Dubinsky
Kreider
Hagelin
Anisimov

That's 8 top-6 caliber forwards. That SHOULD be enough. There were a number of reasons we couldn't win this year.

Gaborik's injury
Hagelins inexperience
Stepan's disappearance.
Callahan's hand (he'll never admit it, but he scored 6 goals in the playoffs, none of them with an actual shot. Put it together)
Dubinsky's bad year.

on the other hand..
Richards had a decent playoffs.
Anisimov did fairly well
Callahan managed to make some noise.
Kreider managed 7 points in his first 18 games as a professional.

To be honest, does anyone here think that those 8 guys , when firing on all cylinders, can't carry us all the way on the front end?

I say stand pat, get the kids more experience, get them ready. We don't need better players, we just need our players to play the way we know they're capable of.
