Currently, our lineup looks like this:

Yakupov - Gagner - Hemsky
Smyth - Horcoff - Jones
Petrell - Bélanger - Eager
Hordichuk the extra forward, with Paajarvi and Hartikainen knocking on the door, ready for an opportunity.
Whitney - J. Schultz
Smid - Petry
N. Schultz - Peckham
Potter the extra D-man, with Teubert (who hasn't impressed at all in the AHL) knocking on the door.
Peckham, Potter and Teubert are garbage. And with an extremely injury prone Whitney, a currently injured Smid, the D-corps could be a disaster with our extremely poor depth.
So, in summary, I don't think you know what you're talking about here...
Clitsome and Potter have very similar numbers, so I'm not sure how you can consider a huge upgrade.
Peckham doesn't play an offensive game, but he still has value as a bottom pairing, press box guy.
I don't see how he's much of an upgrade over what we currently have available for a bottom pairing role.
