He will pop a few and then he will be on his way. The 3 wingers around them are Kreider,Hagelin and Pyatt. The bottom 3 is a combination of Asham,Rupp,Halperin and Ferreiro. 13 forwards. Slats got Avery for Jason Ward,MA Cliche and Jan Marek which became a 3rd when Marek didn't sign w/LA. Prust and Joker for Kotalik and Higgins. You know Slats and Gorton are looking to improve the roster.
RB, I agree 100% with everything you mention above.
The question I have is, what exactly are they looking to improve? I think we are lacking a #6 D-man (if you consider Stralman as the #5), who can eat at least 10mins a game, another top 9 forward, but most importanty we need to improve the PP. If we don't get someone who can shoot from he point (like Streit/Markov/Garrison- just examples),our PP will continue to fail. I think the #6 Dman and top 9 forward could be had at the trade deadline, but my top priority would be the "shooter" on the PP.
