The only way I would want to get bigger is moving Smith/Butler to get a bigger defensemen for the pk. Again I would rather have a team of 5'10 players that have skill and won't quit on a play then a player like Scott.
Scott is a terrible player who brings nothing of quality to a team intending to compete for the Cup. I'd rather have Max Kuznetsov circa 2002.

That said I would love to try and get Grossmann maybe Stempniak + Butler for Grossmann + Wellwood Idk but that is the kind of defensemen I want.
I was seriously surprised at the disinterest in Wellwood in the offseason; the guy scored nearly 50 points, can play all three forward positions, is good defensively, and is beastly on faceoffs. IIRC he actually ended up taking a pay cut after a long UFA period of nobody signing him. I wanted the Wings to pick him up for the third line (as well as bring back Hudler; you're welcome BTW. )

The other player I would like is Murray from SJ.
Murray is a decent bottom pair stay-at-home type, but he's not worth $2.5m. He had a good stretch at the right time and cashed in, but he's a bottom pair guy.
