Look, y'all are looking for player types and looking for guys to fit the roles instead of seeing who is available who could do a lot of good things and provide a veteran presence. You could play Bailey with Nelson and Grabner & Bouchard with Nielsen and Grabner. Or if Moulson or JT go down with an injury, Bouchard slots in and picks up the slack. Ditto for Nielsen. Dude is versatile. He will be more affordable than he should be because of the concussion history.

When the team is unlikely to sign a power-forward (Horton and Clowe are the the only real options, and neither are going to be affordable), you look for slot-in guys.

.
I'm not sure Horton won't be available. Boston looks like they will have to let him go for cap reasons. A playoff berth for the isles this season+ the looming move to a brand new arena would be strong selling points for Snow.
