I agree with everything you said. Just wait for the stupid counter arguments.
Adding to that sound argument, Montreal GM said he is looking for a banger and none are available. No team ever let's them go unless it's for a premium. He said you have to draft and develop power forwards, they are an extremely rare commodity in the NHL. We need to keep Hartnell and Simmonds, plus I would love to add another on the third line. Downie is a good player, but another big body to forecheck and crash the net hard would be great for Couts. Laughton might be a possibility for that spot next year, but I still think we make a move at the draft for a big named defender or a top line winger with our 1st rounder being dangled. We need a top line winger for Giroux, one who can give us 40 goals. That would even allow us to move Hartnell down a line and have Simmonds on the third line. Our top 9 would be extremely deep again.
