I still see a team that could use more skill on the blueline, and one who desperately needs more skill on the blueline on the power play. I don't see why we're not focused more on that issue. I think winning a Cup with a power play that rivals your average high school team's probably doesn't happen more than once a century.
I'm kinda hoping they do both!

I think we could use someone else on D, but I am more concerned about defensive depth headed into the playoffs. Ideally, I would like someone who can push both Quaider and Ference a bit.

Overall, I don't worry about this team's ability to keep the puck out of the net in the playoffs, but I do worry about their ability to score in tight defensive games against elite goaltending.

As far as the PP goes, if you acquire a "top 6" talent, they could also help the PP, it doesn't necessarily have to come from the point.

Who would you like as a fit on defense for this team if you had your choice?
