like Crew said his pricetag probably will be to high but if I had to pick 1 position I would pump money into it would be defense. Sadly the UFA market this year sucks for the type of guy we need, the only way we can improve in that area would be trade a few prospects/picks for a team looking to trade a player(most likely for Cap relief).
A more likely option is just resigning Streit or making a trade for a guy like Ballard. In all reality the Islanders should have been pushing hard for Jay Bouwmeester(sure he might not be a #1 defenseman and he is overpaid but he would have made a huge improvement to our roster) since he is probably the best you are going to get on the trade market(besides maybe Yandle but I think we need a guy who is more known for defense/2 way play)
