I think are defense is way worse than are forwards and I still would rather have that top D guy who can do it all. A Ryan McDonagh would be a great fit,but I know the rangers would never part with him.
We could have afforded Ryder at 3.5m. We could have afforded Semin at 7m (although I only would have done so on a 1 yr deal - but would have paid 5m on a 2-3 yr deal).

I agree we'll be hard pressed to fit everyone in if we went after another allstar winger. But that's not what most of us are asking for. We're just asking for an upgrade over Dupuis and whatever 3rd/4th line grinder that we put on Geno's other wing. This shouldn't cost more than 3-5m, and would make a huge difference in how our attack looks.
