Overall, like to see us add a veteran faceoff specialist and maybe a spare forward who can fight. In case we face tough team in playoffs. At least somebody who doesn't embarass the team against an Orr and without putting one of our top players in the box.
There are upsets in the earlier rounds. But there is no such thing as a upset in the finals. Both teams who make it that far are "battle tested" or stress tested or whatever you want to calling, playing a more taxing and energetic style for about a month and a half, and with hidden injuries throughout the roster.

There are upsets because the upset usually all have some deficiencies that were exploited and/or the upsetter got on an extreme hot streak.

What we need is either Gionta stop sucking or upgrade from him and we need Markov to do the same when the time counts. Otherwise, we have to trade for a rental solution.
A faceoff specialist is indeed sorely needed here as well.
