Honestly? There are only 2 main needs.

#1. We need a Malhotra.

This team was at it's best with a pure, faceoff winning, defensive 3rd line center. It allowed players like Kesler to be freed up to play offensively, it improves our puck possession and PK. It stabilizes our bottom 6. AV's strategy, line matching, etc. requires this type of player on the team.


#2. We need a PP specialist.

Without Kesler this year we have no PP. Without an above average PP we are not winning games, either in the regular season or the playoffs. The big reason we are slumping so much this year? Our PP is currently 27th in the league and have been top 5 the last 2 seasons (I believe #1 and #4).
