Most importantly, no team in the East gets a lot better. Yes, that starts with the Penguins, but there are a few others that didn't need to be adding an elite player either.

There are certainly other free agents out there, but most of them have warts.
It's funny because the Wild are currently a 7-10 team in the West, imo. Trades, Nash and Semin are far from done, but the teams in the East are weaker if none of those happen in the East. Ribs, Crabb and Hillen are looking solid atm.
