Is that really our main need?

Doughty, Voynov, and Martinez are all under 25. We have Forbort, Muzzin, Deslauriers, and Ebert in the AHL. Greene isn't even 30 yet, and Scuderi and Mitchell each have a few good years left in them (Mitchell is the oldest King at 35).

In my eyes, our greatest need is still a high-scoring winger. I don't know that Gagne or Penner can be trusted in that role, and Williams should really play on the second line with Richards and Carter.
