Ok, so this is the highest tier of realistic targets, what about the next tier down. Lets discuss some younger targets with potential, players like Berglund that could use a change of scenery, and some veteran targets that are a notch down. Any ideas?
For the young ones with potential, ones that appear to be available are Couturier and Schenn, although I'm not that big of a fan of either one. If I had to choose one it would be Schenn, but no way I'd move Shattenkirk. Lets leave Burmistrov out because he hasn't shown anything that he can be an upgrade over Sobotka.
The next category would be guys like Gagner. Basically instead of the 1st/2nd combo with Backes and Stastny/Pavelski/Plekanec, we would have a 2nd/3rd line combo with Berglund and Gagner, etc.
We really haven't talked about veterans that could be available that are a notch down from the low end 1st liners. Someone like a Peverley or Nielsen could be a good stopgap option.
