Tell me if I need to add.
thats not enough for one thing...as much as I like those players.

and why the hell would you want the guy at forward? You have plenty of shut down D to shield his defensive screw ups, and you only have one puck mover.

Buff got like 30pts at forward with the exception of a great playoff run in '10. At D, he was almost a ppg player lol. in 66 games he got 53 pts. At forward he maxed out at 36pts, and never broke the 20g plateau.

His D isn't even that bad, he's just really bad at transitioning from one zone to another.
