Boyle, Callahan, small asset
Gagner, Hemsky, and Belanger

Then our team looks like:

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Yakupov-ROR-Paajarvi
Hartikainen-Boyle-Jones
Eager-Horcoff-Petrell

A little less flash and dash and less scoring in our top 6, but that IMO looks like a pretty well balanced forward group. Or perhaps we switch RNH and ROR around and that would balance the scoring a little better?

I would do it..At some point we have to stop losing and acquiring assets..Let's use some of those assets now to get a better team for the short and long term..despite the over-payment...which would be required I'm sure.
