I'd still like to see another d-man signed/acquired, but a top 4 guy, not a bottom paring guy, to push Ference to bottom pairing and move Belov to the #7 guy.
Love Petry too... but I think for J. Schultz best development he needs to slide down two spots... right now he should get easy even strength minutes... and loads of PP time... 48 games last year okay that's fine... but he was obviously tired by the end of it... asking him to do 82 games this year suicide for our 10th place hopes never mind playoffs...
We just need a vet RHD who can move the puck... does not have to be all world right now... just someone who can reach outside of 40 points... Smid can lock down the left side no problem
So this is what I would like to see
N. Schultz-J. Schultz
Let all of Grebs Larsen Belov start in the A
Question is who is out there, who can we afford salary wise who will be not expensive to get from an asset standpoint
Young but not cheap- Franson Pietrangelo Shattenkirk Yandle Del Zotto
Young but risky- Niskanen Nikitin Rundblad Stralman
Vet but not cheap- Boyle
Vet but risky- Meszaros Pitkanen Liles Gilbert (UFA)
