Neither. We finally have talented stars that have no defensive help and a horrible supporting cast and the answer is - trade the stars.
It's been mentioned time and again, we need to revamp the rest of this sorry lot. They should target 4 UFAs in the age range of 27-30 and MAYBE contemplate a guy like Streit.
Horton, Clowe, Clarkson, Bickell, Stalberg, Filppula, Chipchura (4th line depth player), Latendresse...there are a lot of good 2nd/3rd line wingers on the UFA market this summer. Guys like Kulemin and Kopecky might be available via trade.
Defense is tough though - the best guys are older, like Streit and Zidlicky. Maybe sign a guy like Hainsey for 1-2 years at under 3M and hope that Klefbom can become a solid d sooner than expected (in two years).
I would actually be in favour of moving Hemsky for a similarily underperforming defenseman, like Tallinder from NJ for instance - also with one year left on his deal.
