Ponikarovski/Zubrus - Loktionov - Kovalchuk
Elias - Zajac - Clarkson
Ponikarovski/Zubrus - Henrique - ??????
Carter - Gionta - Bernier
Centers can be moved around, but I think we need another RW to solidify that third line spot, because Butler was our best bet and now he's a Predator.
Clutterbuck and Halischuk are two names that have been tossed around.
What? No. We don't need another 3rd liner. Poni is not a 1st liner and I strongly believe that's why his production has slowed down (especially compared to last year.) We need a first line/top 6 forward.
And you can't say "we don't have the assets" given what other fans expect in order to acquire a player like Cammy or someone with low value right now in Weiss.
That said the ONLY name mentioned thus far that interests me is Stafford. Like Weiss he has underperformed thus far but has the potential to be a 30 goal scorer. However he is a RW and unless Deboer swallows his pride and moves Kovalchuk to LW (which we all know he is a fan of Kovy on RW.) what does your first line become? Henrique-Zajac-Stafford? Kovy is a first line winger so getting a player like that would make little sense unless you get Kovy back at LW (Kovy-Zajac-Stafford)
