Should we target players like these to help make us more effective in the playoffs?
No, we should target players that make us more well-rounded. I don't get why we need a game-breaker, we need depth. Y'know, a third line that can score and take pressure off the top six. Boston had depth, LA definitely had depth. Both teams had an individual or two that scored a few big goals and what not, but we also have those players: Kesler, Burrows, Sedin, Sedin.
I don't get why we should sell the farm for one player (when our future isn't the brightest to begin with) when all we truly need is a top six winger (who we could maybe get from a Luongo trade) and depth.
I believe depth wins games. It's pretty hard for the opposition to handle three waves of offense, especially in a seven game series where fatigue can take a toll when you're constantly trying to keep the puck out of your net while up against three lines, and then a fourth line that wears you down even further.
