Not sold on David Jones. If he came cheap then worth a shot but I think he's both injury prone and overrated. With Colorado I don't see anyone outside of ROR or maybe McGinn worth inquiring about, and in any case no one who will dramatically improve our Cup chances. They're not a very good team and short of Landeskog (who will never be traded or not until he's had a few rough seasons in a row), nobody you'd think "there's a guy we should sign for the next 5 years and make a bunch of Cup runs".

Shero's options are to go big for a player like Perry or Ryan and go for "the 5 year plan" that way, or sign two lesser but still very respectable players and go for it by committee. But the number of guys potentially on the market, who by themselves could make us a top contender the way Hossa did, you can count on one hand.
