Precisely.

Getting a top-end goal scoring talent would be sexy, but IMO we need to find a 3rd line winger. We have 6 d-men signed for next year, but I don't think they plan on Matt playing (possibly as the #7 guy), so they also need a d-man.

If a top 4 D isn't available, that can wait until the summer - Ference is still a viable #5/6 guy.

The other issue is Horton - sign him or trade him. Personally, I have a gut feeling he's going to be traded. Three separate deals, one to bring in Horty's replacement, another to replace the picks/prospects by shipping Horty out, and a third to bring in a fix for the 3rd line.
