I think any further upgrade on d this year involves a ruutu/skinner trade. Next year as well. Unless we let Pitts walk and sign someone else with his money.
I have to agree with this. As much as I was a HUGE Jagr fan as a kid, Morrow is what this team is missing right now, another physical top 9 forward. Right now we only have Ruutu for that, and even if we signed Jagr that would still be the case.

Jagr's an elite puck possession guy, but physical he is not.
