Personally, I'd like a clone of a healthy mid 2000s Svatos. With Duchene and PAP I think the AVs need a player who is great at getting into scoring positions and quickly receiving a pass and putting it on goal. I really haven't watched other teams near as much as I used to since I got CI because I pretty much have been glued to the AVs. Who would be considered a comparable player? Are there any similar players coming up in FA or that might be had in trade?

I think with EJ, Siemens, Jones, Barrie, Elliott, we are fine in the young D department. Especially if Jones really can play the left side. Another " Hejda " would be great. Because otherwise the D would be awfully young. But you can probably get a solid vet in FA or in a secondary trade. So if we trade one of ROR / Stastny,
we need a sniper back.
The one thing missing on this team is a sniper that gets you 30 goals each and every year. Landeskog or Duchene can score but I am not too impressed with their shots.

So JVR for Stastny might make some sense but I am drawing a blank on his playing style right here. I know that he scores goals. But how is his shot?

Semin last year would have been perfect but I would prefer a younger cheaper (less skilled) version.

Otherwise we have to restock our prospect pool and rebuild our bottom 6. Goaltender and defense (need Jones and one vet!) and center (Malone for #4 C) looks fine to me right now.
