Based on the current personnel:

SK-Fisher-Erat
Wilson-Legwand-Hornqvist
Halischuk-Smith-Bourque
Spaling-Gaustad-Yip
McGratton

Weber-Josi
Klein-Blum
Gill-Ellis

Rinne
Mason

But I'd love to see a vet D-man and a legit top six winger signed. Push Yip down onto the bench and Halischuk down onto the fourth line with Spaling and Gaustad, slide Wilson down onto the youth line so he and Smith can keep building chemistry, and put somebody like Semin on the wing with Legwand and Hornqvist and you're talking about a much improved offensive lineup with some scoring punch on all four lines.

I'd like to see a vet d-man brought in too. Not necessarily a big-money top-pairing type of guy, but a depth defenseman. Somehow who can sit in the pressbox if the kids step up, but will be there to fill in for a few games if Blum or Ellis is struggling and won't look out of place stepping onto the bottom pairing if one of the kids completely falters.
