Don't get me wrong, I think we can upgrade on Gagner (get someone bigger) and bring aboard someone like Steve Ott to play on the wing but fill in at center when injuries occur.

I'd e happy with Reinhart for obvious reasons but our lack of top pairing defencemen is a much bigger need.
This. I once again go back to the Ice Dogs last year. During the lockout they had Hamilton playing 30 minutes a night and they were one of the top teams in the league. The lost him, and lost something like 10 of 12 games and dropped far in the standings.

#1 d-man is the most important thing to look for.
