There are numerous free agent forwards who would fill in nicely on 1 year deals. This team needs to make the playoffs.

I am also hugely in favor of dealing our 2014 1st to upgrade at LW or C.

I am actually ok with the D. N.Schultz was upgraded by adding Ference and Belov has to be better than Fistric and Peckham. Larsen and Klefbom could be pleasant surprises. Klefbom will be logging 20 minutes a night in the NHL by January, and it will be well earned.
Let's talk about a couple of left wingers that you'd trade the 2014 1st for....

Vanek??? I probably would
Clifford???? I dunno
Steen???? Possibly
Perron??? I dunno

Who were you thinking
