A better built bottom six, a top six power forward, a No.2 D-man

That's honestly about it, but that's enough pieces to make them a non-playoff team. Just ask Calgary, they are probably a No.1 C from making the playoffs but they never can get one.

Clowe fits your power forward bill, no one else will be available to fill that spot. Probably need to find a d-man with a Hemsky + Paajarvi package, I like Horcoff but if he was amnestied then they have more flexibility. Hartikainen would be the eventual Smyth replacement. If Edmonton waits until 2014, Phaneuf is a solid fit as a UFA if he makes it to July 1. Not many available d-men.

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Clowe-Gagner-Yakupov
Smyth-Barkov/Monahan/Lindholm-Jones
Eager-Belanger-Brown

J.Schultz-?
Smid-Petry
N.Schultz-Klefbom
Fistric

Dubnyk
UFA/trade goalie backup
