Thankfully it seems like there are still opportunities for that space to be used. On the free agent front, I'd welcome any of Grabovski, Antropov, Jagr, Gagne, Hainsey, Penner, White, Cleary, etc.

On the trade front, Meszaros could be nice, as could one of N. Foligno/Umberger, as would Malone, even a guy like David Legwand. They don't have to be huge additions to improve the team, and the benefit of having so much cap space to burn in a tight cap year is that some truly useful pieces should be available for less than their on-ice value would suggest.

The bottom line is that MacT still has a lot of work to do. Ference + Gordon is a great start though.
