So what's wrong with what I suggested a couple of pages ago in Franzen, Ericsson, a prospect, and a pick (that nobody responded to)?

- Franzen is an experienced 30-goal scorer signed long-term at a very reasonable cap hit (Age: 33; signed until 2020 at $3.95m);
- Ericsson is young, signed for a couple of years, and has a top-4 upside (Age: 28; signed until 2014 at $3.25m);
- The Wings have a decent amount of talented forward prospects;
- Don't really know the value of picks
