#1. Boon Jenner: Young, gritty and skilled and is still considered to be developing. CBJ have depth through the middle and he can be had for cheap compared to other options.
#2. Brayden Schenn: Same player as Jenner just 2 years older and has a lot of NHL experience as well as playing very well in last years playoffs. But from what ive seen Philly are looking for defense in return which we don't have, it would take a lot to pry him out of there.
#3: Colin Wilson: Hes not really super physical or gritty but hes a big body with skill who would flourish in an offensive system and has learned a lot being in Trotz' system and would be cheaper than Schenn
#4: Dave Bolland: Hes been stuck behind a lot of centers his career and played a shut down role really well, if Toronto cant meet his contract demands we could get him for cheap or wait till FA and hope he signs here.
Honorable mention: 2014 Draft: I only make a trade for a 2c at the draft, if Ekblad isn't available there's a good chance Sam Bennett is, there's our #2 right there. We could possibly trade down and draft Connor Bleackley who looks really great in red deer but may or may not take a bit to develop, hard to say.
These are the kinds of guys I want MacT looking at. Not exactly the most highly sought commodities, so they wont cost an arm and a leg in a trade, but are young and have upside and more importantly, proven NHLers.
