Pleks, O'Rielly, Galchenyuk is a very solid top 3 with better size and skill. DD can either move to the wing, or back to the 4th line. We don't have any quality centres coming up.
I really don't expect it to happen, but ROR is an organizational need.
ROR would be a great addition. I don't consider him coming to Montreal a possibility because of our lack of cap space, and because of Bergevin's similar contract dispute with Subban. The trade or offer sheet will have to involve a team that doesn't mind spending ~$5mil/yr on a second contract.
