Which will open up more chances for our forwards to shoot and deflect shots! Once that happens Hornqvist, Tootoo, SK, and Spaling will be 70 pt players.

Right now the team is allowing 2.83 goals per game while the offense is scoring 2.64. It just depends on what you want. To continue allowing close to three goals per game and hope another forward can come in and boost our production closer to the three goal area, or another veteran defenseman to take the place of one of the younger, struggling guys and lower the amount of points allowed. I don't think there one is needed more than the other, but it's going to be much easier and less expensive (financially, of course, but more importantly, less expensive in terms of assets) to find a solid defensive defenseman to both anchor the blueline and help improve the PK.

The type of forward who can come in an bolster an offense enough to negate some of the inconsistent defense this team has seen this season (and goaltending, oddly enough) is rare in this league.

One thing that's frustrating is that Poile is on the record from this past summer admitting we need a top-6 scorer added, yet here we are... Nearly January.

Think of the highlight reel you could make of unpenalized shots or cheap post whistle takedowns of Horny...

Admitting there is a problem and having a solution to that problem are two different things. Finding an available top six forward that is as good as or better than the top six forwards we already have, who is available before his team knows whether or not they are actually out of the running for the play offs, has no clauses in his contract that ties the hands of his GM in terms of making a move, who plays for a team in need of the assets we have, and who is worth the asking price is a bit of a challenge that I think gets unappreciated. Not to mention having to keep in mind two superstar defensemen in need of contracts

But yes, we are still in need of that move to be found and completed. I hope it happens as more players become available.

Oh and BLUM!!! or TOOTOO!!!

Think P & T are right-- should be Tootoo's goal. Great screen by Spaling and Tootoo for that matter...

Exactly. Get Heatley and Setoguchi .... score fewer goals than the Preds a-la the Wild. Go like Florida and have one line that can score but nothing beyond that. We don't have flashy scoring, but we have effective scoring with three lines capable of putting up goals plus Halischuk on the 4th line.

and btw imo we need both defense and offense lol..

think about the past couple of seasons.. well ever since we have made the playoffs on a consistent basis. we have NEVER and i mean NEVER been the team that controls the tempo of a game night in and night out.. and to win the cup i believe we must gain more offense and control the tempo and puck more.. now if we're talking about settling like the past seasons and possibly squeaking into the 2nd round of the playoffs like usual then yeah lets add a Zanon, O'Brien, etc.. and hope we can win the cup.. doing the same things but expecting different results is crazy or however the quote goes... ahhh the joys of being a team with a self-imposed cap...
