Two that stand out to me and make sense:

Filpulla (for a deal around Sekera)
Brodziak (for a deal around Leopold)

Both are plausible candidates and good in different ways. Both would fill a huge hole and allow Regier to go after scoring on the wing. Neither would stand in the way if Grigorenko comes out the gate like Malkin (as unlikely as that may be.)

Regier can't go into the season sporting Ennis, Cody, and a plethora of fourth-line depth centers. He also can't count on Ott or Leino to pick up the slack (which they may be asked to do in lieu of injuries anyway). So what's his master plan? And I said this before, but I really think Hecht becomes his worst case scenario...
Buffalo needs a line 4 center, they have their 3 centers already.
