To that effect, Schroeder finding his NHL game will go a long way in assuaging fears here. He needs to become a 2nd liner, eventually. If he is able to do that, then this team is fine for a long time. Centre ice will be taken care of with Schroeder and Gaunce on the way -- and possibly more in the Luongo trade -- and the offense will continue to hum along.

Offense is key here. It's a reason I think Gillis prioritizes forwards at the top end of the draft.
Gaunce Schroeder Jensen Corrado and Kassian need to be contributors in some role in the next two seasons and it will allow us to shore up other areas with the savings.
