Trade for Byfuglien.
easier said than done tho
Size on the wings? Other than Gionta and Gallagher, who are both fearless, our other wingers are all above average size...Pacioretty Ryder Bourque Galchenyuk Moen Prust Armstrong.
Byfuglien is an offensive d-man with below average defense, not a good fit with what we currently have. Yes he is the biggest guy in the NHL, but he is also out of shape and has little endurace. Not to mention that he would cost a lot to trade for.
Clarkson is a solid player, but no way he is worth close to the 5 mil/year that he might cost to bring in. If we want another fighter, get a big guy like Kassian or McLaren to play 35-40 games a year.
Adding size on defense will be Tinordi, if they don't want to rush him sign a 1 year guy to split time with Bouillon.
