Not sure that's going to be done in time for July 1st.

Regardless, I don't think we should fill out that last spot by overpaying in both term and dollars for Stalberg or Horton. I'd rather count on competition during camp to fill things out and if we can't find a solution there or know that it's not possible then go out via the trade route. Remember, the cap is falling so we might be able to take advantage of that. I'm also not convinced the new coach is going to want to run three scoring lines. It'd be really nice to do that but not at the expense of handcuffing the team constantly trying to balance the cap.
I do think they should try to have the management situation figured out before the draft. However some of the holes are glaringly obvious and won't be filled by the system, and that's what they need to attack in free-agency.

That is one or two veteran players with a winning history.
