I don't really care who gets brought in, so long as a centre ice is solidified. Of course, with the pending cap crunch, cheaper is better. Not to mention the assets required to trade for a player as opposed to getting them in free agency. So in that respect, Stastny seems the least likely of all options... if the Canucks were going that way, that is.
Posted my proposed roster in the roy thread. involves moving Burrows to #3C....Gillis wants it to check.
Let Burrows work on his faceoffs.
Try Schroeder with Kesler and Booth, Kassian with the Twins and stick with it.
There's youth and some beef in the top 6, and excellent shutdown line (Higgins-Burrows-Hansen), and if you think we really need it, move Edler for either a potential (yet young and cheap...Couturier) #3C + futures or another front line forward to supplement the top 6.
I think trying what they have with a new coach will be tried, and these drastic changes and BIG moves are very unlikely.
They'll hope to add a small to medium piece in free agency and hopefully gain futures in a goalie trade.
If under a new coach this roster still looks stagnant, upgrades will be made mid-season. A real 82 game season not a "messed up" one, will be more conducive to hockey trades.
