The firepower is there. Adding one more winger should absolutely cement that and move people into better places. The 3rd line is a bigger concern than the top 2 IMO.
Dustin Penner: 60GP 10 goals (30 points)
Dustin Brown: 32GP 10 goals (27 points)
Jeff Carter: 67GP 21 goals (34 points)

I know we had Sid and Malkin, but our support cast tends to disappear in the playoffs, statistically speaking, compared to their regular season play. Hopefully Shero can find another good winger, better than Setoguchi to pick up the slack.
