We need players like bobby Ryan and a Jordan eberle type player who can control the play with the puck. Voracek needs to start using his body again, when he does that and protects the puck, he is elite. His back isn't fully healthy though so I will give him a pass for a little longer.

That's my take atleast. If we had one more player like a eberle or Ryan they could really set this offense up. Elite puck skills is what this team needs. Giroux and voracek and the only two who have that ability to consistently do it. Vinny is a little beyond his prime.
Penguins and the likes of Edmonton and other pick-farming teams aside, how many teams have more than one elite player on them? We've picked top 2 once in a lifetime, our squad is balanced rather than top-heavy and it tends to do us well.
