Staal and Baranka should compete for blueline minutes and I'm comfortable. We need an adequate backup for the King. My real concern is upfront. REgrettably, our best players are over 34, Jagr, Nylander, Straka, Shanny. Avery though a nice addition is suited for third line duty with Cullen. wHAT DO WE DO WITH THE SECOND LINE, especially during the next two years? Develop Callahan, Prucha Dubinsky, and Bourret or do we go for it and sign Gomez, Drury or Briere. All things equal, I also stay the course or look to get younger through trades. However, management may look to sign a ufa and bring back Shanny.
