If the season ever gets going, I'd like to see Edm sign Pavel Kubina. He'd be a good right shot DMan to play second pair IMO. Could set the D up as follows:

Smid-Petry
Whitney-Kubina
N. Schultz-J. Schultz
Sutton

As for the forwards:

Hall-Hopkins-Eberle
Hemsky-Gagner-Yakupov
Smyth-Horcoff-Jones
Eager-Belanger-Petrell
Hordichuk

It's best to leave guys like Paajarvi, Lander, Pitlick and Hartikainen to get top 6 minutes in the AHL once Hall, Hopkins and Eberle are gone.

Quoting older post here, but after watching Yak play in the Subway Series I'd love to see him play with Hall or Hemsky, both guys who can really skate. Yaks showed a lot of skill as a playmaker, very surprised at his passing ability. Not something I knew he had.
