. Alright, there was bad feedback. Most of the core pieces are in place to compete for the next 4-8 years.
There is a problem on defence. I'm not a huge fan of Emelin or Diaz but I think they'll do fine until Tinordi and Beaulieu are ready for top 4 minutes. If Desharnais can be moved to improve defence in the top-4, nothing would make me happier. If he can't, I just hope he's not part of the future of the team
. If there are no trades for improvement, sign a plug and wait it out.
Top-End Prospects (insert them where you will):
Kristo, Ellis, Hudon, Bozon, Leblanc, Bournival, Pateryn, Collberg, Holland
Something that's sorely missing is size and physicality in our potential top 9, as we are missing now. I think that if we can acquire a player now to develop with our core, it would really benefit the future of the team. The easiest way to fill this need is through the draft (De La Rose, Gauthier, Wennberg, Mantha etc.). Another possibility is by signing an RFA this summer. My two ideal candidates would be Jordan Caron and Magnus Paajarvi. Both have high potential, size and, hopefully, availability.
What I hope to see next year:
Way too soft. Trade Gionta, get Clowe or Clarkson and another sizeable winger....not Leblanc/Caron/Paajarvi
