Had a look at the UFA list last night.
Horton or Raymond would be good additions to 2LW with Schenn-Simmonds - esp. if we have to throw Read in a trade for a 1D.
The other two guys who intrigue are Stallberg and Bickell from Chicago. Perhaps they won't be able to keep them after Cup run.
On D, there are a couple guys. Streit didn't sign with NYI before the deadline, so he might be on the market. Hainsey is another option.
In my view, that's Homer's big offseason issue - a new 1D.
We have a lot of guys under contract already.
Timonen-Coburn - Braydon played his best with Kimmo in the 2nd pairing
Gustafsson/Gervais as 7/8
? - Could it be someone like the much discussed Yandle? A UFA like Streit or Visnovsky or Hainsey? Or Dan Boyle?
We just need to replace/upgrade Matt Carle's puckmoving with a smallish, fast player who can help run the PP2 and take pressure off Kimmo.
I don't think Gus is it. Ghost might be in a few years, paired with whoever we take with our 1st round pick: Nurse or Zadorov.
I think the Flyers will have seen a lot of Nurse watching Cousins and Alderson, and alot of Zadorov scouting Stolarz.
