Thoughts please....
The current lineup is:

DSP-Getz-Perry
Cogs-Koivu-Selanne
Ryan-Bonino-Palmieri
Winnik-Holland-Staubitz
Beleskey

Beauchemin-Fowler
Sbisa-Allen
Lydman-Souray
Guenin

Hiller
Fasth

I'd put us somewhere between 7-11. basically we are currently a very mediocre team with a decent shot at playoffs. No way in hell we would get past 1 round of playoffs though. Another 2nd line center would make us a lock for the playoffs and adding a 2nd line center + a top six winger makes us a contender IMO.

My wish: trade Lydman as part of a package for Malone or sign Doan (but Doan is almost definitely not happening).

Trade Cogs and picks/prospects to Columbus for Brassard.

Malone-Getzlaf-Perry
Ryan-Brassard-Palmieri
DSP-Koivu-Selanne
Winnik-Bonino-Beleskey/Staubitz

Beauchemin-Fowler
Sbisa-Allen
Lindholm/Vatanen-Souray
Guenin

If fowler or Sbisa can take another step, that's a contending roster IMO.
