Heres where it gets tricky. That team is not going to win without a true #1 center and a PP QB. No stone should be left unturned in an attempt to acquire these 2 things. This would be the focal point of the offseason for me, but there'd be a set of guidelines involved about age and contract terms of the acquired player(s). No 5+ year deals. I would deem virtually no one untouchable to achieve this.
...and thats the toughest part. Sure seems like a dim proposition.
I think that's fair. I also see a huge hole on the left wing. Hagelin, Zuccarello, Pyatt is beyond laughable. Fast and Miller can be RWers. Kreider, Hrivik and Thomas are LWers but none of them will be impact players next year or most likely the year after.
