Hunwick - Elliot

Johnson at this point cannot be considered a #1 pairing Dman. The jury is out on Elliot and Barrie. Both are major, major liabilities on D. At this point, I would rather play Elliot than Barrie.

Varlamov ??

Varlamov has some major question marks as well. But, he is all we have.

We are basically in need of a #1 LW, a #3 C, a #3 RW for forwards and a #1, #2 and #3 Dmen.

Sherman has taken this team full of talent and turned it into the leagues laughing stock.
You like it or not, Jones will probably stay with Colorado for another season, Stastny maybe as well. Then they both will be gone or not in a year, depends how they play together. I don't see Jones very valuable, If Stastny leaves. Jones really needs Stastny.
EJ is top-pairing guy. Just give him someone who can play top-pairing as well. You are going to throw out Hejda and others as well?

I think we are just missing one first pairing guy, then our defense would be OK. Not to mention Siemens could become very good defensive defenseman in couple years. We have a lot of potential in defense, so we shouldn't go out and sign 2-3 more guys. Then our prospects would never get playing time (Elliott, Siemens, Barrie etc.)

EJ-Top-pairing guy
Wilson-Hunwick/Elliott/O'Brien whoever
