I get the like on Stalberg, big, fast and the skill set to do 17-20 goals. But what we lack is not just size, but physical play. If you put Stalberg on with Patches and DD I really don't see anything special. Put on a big guy who is physical and will tough it out in the tough areas like the front of the net and I could see synergies there that make the whole line better than the individual players, could at least be able to cycle the puck better. Guy like Bickell, though that dude has likely priced himself into overpayment plus 50% given his play-offs.
