Don't disagree with you at all about the top-6/defense. I still like the strategy of waiting until the offseason to sort that out though. Get futures first, then parlay some of those into packages for needs.

Regehr would be a nice fit as a UFA if we weren't committed to Erskine. Brings a veteran presence, toughness, and solid defensive play. But he provides no offense and is slow. The Caps are desperate for mobility and offense from the left side. I'd love to get a guy like Streit as a UFA and trade for someone like Robidas. We improve the mobility and offense form the left while still adding toughness, experience, and leadership.
Yeah I'm with you. For now, if we continue to engage in suck, we should just look to acquire futures and then re evaluate the team in the offseason.

Besides the teams we would be trading wtih probably don't even want to give up quality NHL roster players anyhow.

With the whole LD/RD thing we definitely need a LD. The Poti/Schultz combo is not the way to go. Alzner and Erskine are fine but we need another.

As far as RD seems like we have a log jam. If Kundratek and Oleksy don't slow down things can get tricky with a compliment of Orlov/Green/Carlson. I'd think we have to move at least 1 of those 5. It would be a shame to have to bury Oleksy or Kundratek in the minors.

But really...our top 6 group is in turmoil. Not producing, 2 of them UFAs, a couple of them not "great" top 6 fits, etc This has to be the first thing looked at IMO
