It'd probably have to be a guy with a big contract or something, because we aren't just going to get an awesome defenseman for no reason. But if we pull that off, we could roll with:
Kronwall - Gunnarsson
New addition - Smith
Ericsson - Colaiacovo/ Kindl
Solid depth and versatility, good mix of young and old.
Then we could have our forward lines be something like:
Filppula - Zetterberg - Brunner/Nyquist(?)
Kulemin - Datsyuk - Samuelsson
Raymond - Helm - Cleary
Bertuzzi - Emmerton - Tootoo
Then we have Eaves, Miller, and Mursak as extras. There is definitely another deal that could be made somewhere with all of these forwards. Like a team wanting to shed a big contract for a couple of smaller ones.
Then we have Luongo and Gustavsson for a solid tandem, and ideally Mrazek is ready in ~4 years or so when Lu is nearing the end.
We already have a ton of depth at forward though. We need top end guys much more than depth.
