proper roster construction, role distribution, and leadership for a young team

not having a vet "over the hill" 3rd line center last year forced Ennis into a role he was ill suited for. that's not good for his development.

a lack of veteran 2 way forwards throughout the lineup hurt guys like Hodgson whose defensive games are not developed enough to carry the load night to night.

with the trade of sekera, we will have multiple rookie defensemen stepping in to starting roles... it would be good to add some veteran depth to ease the transition so that we don't have to pair 2 rookies together.

there are a lot of reasons... think about it
