don't confuse it.

The secondary need is the top six center with size and grit. 2nd pairing D is more of a luxury than a need for the Oil. I would respect someone wanting #1 goalie as either the biggest or the secondary need, but imo we should look for a free agent for the netminder, or at least wait until we see what Bryz can do.

Our biggest need, the top pairing D, is ideally a RHD. It should be someone who is young enough to be able to play alongside Nurse for at least a few years (but ideally young enough to stay with the team a long time). They don't have to be Pietrangelo. It could be someone like Petry who makes less mistakes

As for assets willing to give up: anyone other than RNH and Hall really, and I suppose Nurse as well. I agree that Ebs/Yak better get a high return but one does make the other expendable so there's that.

I think that if we are serious about finding that D or center we need we should be open to trading Perron as well. It better be a pretty good player coming back if that's the case
