(Mods/OP: not trying to hijack the thread, but still in the world of our bottom 6 so thought this might fly - feel free to delete)
The problem with that list is that the majority of players on there are in their late 20's/early 30's. The sens are building a younger team so most of those players are simply too old for the direction that the organization is heading in. Although Dwight King and/or Cal Clutterbuck would be solid additions to the team.
Beside the sens have a lot of prospects pushing for spots and they need to provide spots for them. Players like Dziurzynski, Noesen and Hoffman are pretty much ready to take spots in the bottom six. Then we have players like Stone and Zibanejad who could start off in the bottom six and then work there way up to the top six.
And we could have added Marcus Foligno to that group if we would have drafted him instead of Chris Wideman.
