I like the idea of David Booth, I like Bryan Little, perhaps Statsny or Duchene (here there are issues him Duchene). Realistically, I think we could see an upgrade at forward by April 3rd. I actually feel better about our blue line than I do our forwards. Ellis, Blum, and Josi have all proven they are very solid when they are on their game. Experience goes a long way.
The forwards, however, need some dynamic force or better depth. I really really wish we hadn't signed Goose to the amount and length that we did.
Unless someone like Kessel becomes available, I think the forwards should stay as is. Let our own guys develop and get a chance to be the "upgrades." This is a transition year for me, I'm not in a rush put out the best team possible immediately (if that makes sense). I want to see what we have first.
We have excellent forward depth, IMO. What we lack is top end forward talent. Adding a Booth or Little does nothing. It's a step backward really. All it does is clog up guys trying to move up in the ranks. I'd rather give that playing time to someone with breakout potential.
I do agree that this is a huge year for Wilson. Same with Blum.
