As much as adding some veteran talent would be nice, I just find it unlikely. Scuderi and Regehr seem to be the best candidates available (Streit is a RH shot), but they're 34 and 33 respectively and I'm sure will be looking for ~4 year deals. Not to mention they'll have other suitors.

Our D is still very much a work in progress but if you look at something like

Barrie - Johnson
Hejda - Jones
Wilson - Elliott

with Siemens in the AHL working for a callup

vs.

Wilson - Johnson
Hunwick - O'byrne
Zanon - O'brien/Barrie

that's actually quite a bit of turnover in opening night rosters. I think management will continue to be patient as we're still missing pieces on D and and at forward, and our core guys are still developing.
