I only want two signings... an experienced top 4 LD and a top 9 wing.

For the top 4 LD the best option IMO is Rob Scuderi. The guy is a winner and provides a great safety net for the young RD. This could allow the D to look like this:

Scuderi-EJ
Hejda-Jones
Wilson-Barrie
Hunwick

Elliott and Siemens start in Lake Erie. Zanon and SOB traded away for anything. There would be a couple more options like Whitney (I might be the only one, but he started to rebound by the end of the season) or Regehr.

Then find a top 6/9 wing to complete the forward group. Stalberg looks ideal considering age, talent, and cost. Briere would add experience and I think he has something left in the tank. Raymond and MacArthur would be other young options. Run this as a forward group:

Stalberg-Duchene-PAP
Landeskog-ROR-Downie
McGinn-Stastny-Jones
McLeod-Mitchell/Malone-Bordy
Olver
Palushaj

That roster should be good enough to get into the playoffs, but won't contend until the young players like Landy, EJ, Barrie, S Jones, etc take the next step.
