going on an assumption that jagr and shanny won't be back and that the 4th line goes through a remodeling as expected from me, i don't think speed will be a huge issue up front. especially with some of these young guys who have that speed and/or quickness. i'd like to address size first there personally.
where i would like to see more quickness and better skating is on the blueline. our d-men have looked like they are in quicksand for 3 years...and that's NOT counting malik.
even mara and backman, 2 guys who have been good skaters, have looked painful out there a lot.
