That's what I was thinking- we don't have many (any?) true PWF types coming up thru the system, but we do have a LOT of small-to-average sized skilled guys. We clearly need top 4 D as well, but in looking at the forward prospects, might not be a bad idea to prioritize the top ones KH wants to keep, and then work off the bottom of the list moving up to see which one/ones might interest the Isles.
There has to be a limit to how many small forwards you can reasonably expect to be in the top 6, and there's a need for big winger who will wear down the top 4 D on opposing teams (we haven't had that guy in a long time).
And if there was a way to get Visnovsky in the deal, I'd be all for that as well. He should have gotten serious Norris consideration 2 seasons ago.
