I Amnestied Bryz and Briere
I signed Streit and Khudobon.
I dealt Coburn and Read for Yandle.
Resigned Gus. Said goodbye to Bourdon and Welwood due to injury problems.
Laughton and Mcginn make the team, sorta ignored Akeson, b/c he could be filled in by any 4th liner. and Hall also resigned cheap as an extra.( not shown)
The forward corps is a tad too young and looks pretty thin, especially when injuries strike and a couple of players are out.

Akeson is undersized and does not know how to play defense and that's why he is not suited for a bottom 6 role. Also, i don't like Jay Roeshill as a regular, not even on the 4th line.

You stacked the defense, which is good. Not sure if we actually need both Yandle and Streit to be successfull. I'd rather have only one of them and spend a little more on forward scoring depth and a Veteran 4th line center with size who can win faceoffs.

Just my two cents.
