Dubnyk played fine last season. Would I have preferred an upgrade like Luongo? Sure. But Dubnyk kept us in many games when we were outshot badly. He falls into the 'an upgrade would be nice, but it's down on the priority list' category.

We do need another LW for sure. We can't go into the season with the left side we have. Shame Hartikainen signed in the KHL, but oh well. We need a player here, and it should be someone with size that can play in the top 9.

If I were GM, Vanek, Ruutu, Kulemin, Penner, is who I'd target, and in that order. I'd be willing to part with Hemsky, N Schultz, any picks, and prospects not named Nurse or Klefbom. If none of those teams were interested in moving those guys for a package involving those assets, then I would just sign Penner and be done with it. Because the D and C also could use work, although if those had to happen during the season, it would probably be ok in terms of our playoff chances.
