You don't like Clowe? It's him, Clarkson or Bickell. Clarkson is likely going to TO. And forget about Horton, he's not coming here to play with Subban.
You don't like McGrattan? Forget about getting a HW, there are no other options on the UFA market.
You don't like Murray? Forget about adding a tough D without giving any asset...
It's not that I don't like Clowe but if his previous demands are any indication, it is more than what I would want to offer. If price and term were reasonable, yes he would be a nice addition but I am not holding my breath.
No, I don't like McGrattan. We fared well against Boston, for example, without him and he wouldn't see the ice in the playoffs.
I think Murray has slowed down to the point of being ineffective. I would sooner take a chance on signing a younger physical defenseman who has some wheels.
All in all, I still like your philosophy but not the specific players you have suggested.
