Everyone focuses on wingers because they are flashy and put up points. When I look at the Sens roster and their prospects I think the best bet for improving the team would be to bring in a defenseman who could slot in at 3/4. I can't imagine Gonchar being offered much considering how badly he tailed off at the end, so I expect him to walk. A vet like Streit would be a good 2-3 year stop gap until the rookies in our system solidify into good NHL players. I would also consider trading away a top prospect, like Stone, packaged with something else to bring in a solid 3/4 guy.

Anyway, the lack of D who could clear the zone efficiently basically roasted us against the Pens. This needs to be corrected before we can push deeper into the playoffs.
