I'd love to see Leetch here, perhaps he's not quite what the doctor order (crease clearing D, see post above) but there's no denying he'd add to an already talented core. I think the thing we need most is a real #1 defenseman, Desjardins is good but not a leaguewide #1 IMO, the entire package rolled into one guy, skilled and tough, but then who doesn't need that.
We have the forwards to go places, the goalies come under alot of scrutiny here with our ever continuing "problem" in net but they're solid at the least, our D lacks the top guys that teams like NJ (Stevens, Neidermayer), Colorado (Blake, Foote), Detroit (Lidstrom, Hatcher) and Ottawa (Chara, Redden) have. Pitkanen's gonna be our next top tier d talent but we do lack it right now, it's the most significant difference I see between our team and the other real contenders.
