I'd say our biggest need is a top pairing defenseman, as a matter of fact. Again, regardless of Perry being unsigned, you guys not wanting to give up a lot, etc., I just don't see a deal that would work between the two teams.
Letang for Upcoming UFA? I can understand that our deal doesn't work for an elite winger like Perry but if he is an upcoming UFA, its more than fair. And that's why, if you look in my previous posts, I have constantly said "If Anaheim can't retain him" because if they can, our deal isn't good enough for Perry and I understand. Just look at what Hossa and Kovalchuk brought. Nothing compared to what we are willing to give up.
