What they don't have anywhere on the horizon except for some potential with Barrie and Elliott is a proven offensive defenseman. They'll have to overpay to get one as a UFA, and have trouble developing them. Wingers on the other hand, this team has done very well finding for reasonable deals in trade, or as UFA's like PAP.
Liles, Shattenkirk, now Barrie, I'd say we do pretty well with offensive dmen to. What we don't do well is high end offensive wingers, and big top pairing dmen.
