I never said that I didn't like Gud.

In fact, I do like Gud and his what he brings each night. I think he's still pretty young and has to improve on some areas to be as effect as possible in the NHL. His attitude and work ethic are admirable. Gud is a great asset.

I think we have a nice future on defense..

Kulikov, Strachan (27), Gudbranson, Robak, Petrovic, Matheson, (future 2013 2nd round pick - defenseman)

We have guys who project to be #1D, #2D, top-four pairing, etc

We do not have the same depth on offense.

Aside from Huberdeau.. Who projects to be a top-liner, let alone crack the top-six.. Bjugstad?

Look. Currently, our best line is Hub - Shore - Mueller. Aside from that, we have a bunch of guys scattered all over the place. We need long-term, high-end stability up front.

Adding MacKinnon or Drouin helps our chances of creating our own version of Kane/ Toews
