Probably not enough quality players for a top pairing dman, but maybe a decent #2 centre.
A little different now with Justin Schultz's emergence in OKC. He'll be top 4 to start but his ceiling is now top 2.

Needs:

A youngish top 4 D-man with good positional awareness, more grit than puck moving skill, could develop into a shutdown top 2.

Two quality two-way bigger forwards to be plugged into our fourth line now, but will play third line minutes and to become third liners when Horcoff and Smyth go next offseason.

Second line center - if Gagner is dealt. Could also be addressed in draft. More a future need than a current need.


Bait:

Hemsky - I recall there was some kind of agreement not to trade him until this year's deadline when he signed his renewal last deadline, but it's not an NMC.
