I don't think there's a single person on this board that denies us lacking a solid top line. The thing that almost all those teams share is that their top lines were primarily built through drafted players, then supplemented by outside acquisitions. It would be extremely difficult to attempt to buy ourselves a top line, in the course of an off-season or two, without losing the type of assets that may eventually grow into the types of players we are seeking (i.e. Forsberg, Wilson). We also lack the organizational assets to acquire more than one of these types of players, and even that may open a bigger hole than the one it would fill.
