If SK is gone, this team only has 3 guys that are legit top 6 players (Fish, Legwand, Wilson). At least two of those are 2nd line quality and Wilson has not yet proven he is top line quality. That's trouble.

We also have Hornqvist, who scores enough but should be a 3rd line guy on a team with a true Top 6. For now, though, he may have to be Top 6.

So we need 2-3 guys. Internal options include FF, Smith, Beck and Bourque. That probably gets you 1 or 2 slots adequately if not optimally filled.

At a bare minimum, then, we need 1 guy from the outside. Really, we need 2 if we are being realistic instead of hopeful. To me, Horny isthe barometer for this team. When he is pencilled into your 3rd line, this is a very good team. When he is pencilled into your top 3, it is a fairly bad team.
