And other than Handzus, how is our bottom-six old and declining? Wingels, Shepard, Galiardi, and Desjardins are young...
The only guys, from memory, who could've helped right now would have been Brad Boyes (unlikely he would have stayed here), Marcel Goc (who simply never put it together here and left as a FA), Christian Ehrhoff (would have priced himself out), and Matt Carle (would have priced himself out). Perhaps Steve Bernier as a #8-9 guy.
The one guys that really fits your billing is Sgarbossa, maybe Connolly. Time will tell.
On that note, what was the trade that SJ made where they lost the pick that turned into David Krejci?
From what I found on the 2004 draft...it was the result of a trade on June 26, 2004 that sent Boston's third and ninth-round picks and Tampa Bay's fourth-round pick all in 2004 (94th, 129th and 288th overall) to San Jose in exchange for this pick.
