Kassian was available last season, not saying get him, but that type - a young up and comer. Will it cost, yes of course, but I don't believe in cheap moves for elements that are hard to find. Make a decision to trade a Dman along with extras if need be. Maybe use that 2nd we'd be wasting on Clowe as a piece.
Kassian would be ideal. Dorsett was a good addition to the Gaborik trade. Players like that are needed. Asham, at 35+ is not a good addition.

McIlrath will help, but the other players need to step up in that department. It's sad when Eminger is your most physical defenseman.
