Team Needs and Surplus

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I thought it might be useful for fans of the various teams in the league to speculate what their team needs and what they have a surplus of. I think that this kind of thread pops up every year around the trade deadline, so I thought I would start early. Like I said...mods can delete if they don't think this thread is relevant or if it is redundant...

From a Leafs fan perspective, the Leafs need a bit of everything, and have a couple of expiring forward contracts (MacArthur, Connolly) and some depth in 2nd pairing D (Liles, Gunnarsson, Komisarek, Kostka) to trade.

Fire away.

Montreal needs: skilled middle 6 LW (would probably have to be at least average size)

Surplus: fringe offensive D, middle 6 C

Nothing urgent, as the team is currently pretty healthy and well rounded. Of course, an awesome quality for quantity deal would be great, but I think most teams in the league would like one of those.

Vancouver needs: None
Vancouver wants: PMD/PPQB able to play right side at even strength, impact scoring winger

Vancouver surplus: Goalies, with other pieces like futures or minor roster players able to be made available as well

Columbus needs: Top-line scoring forwards, particularly at RW and C.
Columbus wants: Draft picks, a proven, established, full-time NHL starting goaltender (we do not want your prospects or backups).
Columbus surplus: Blueline prospects, blueliners who are "NHL-ready with upside". Some two-way forwards. One or two change-of-scenery types (Brassard, in particular).


Suffice to say that our market presence may not be all that significant this year.

Flyers

Need: Offensively talented d and a quality top six winger would do. One who plays it naturally. Backup goalie would be nice but not necessary.

Surplus: only real expendable depth is at center. Giroux, Couturier, Schenn, Briere, Laughton all can or do play center.

Detroit

Needs: Top 4 dman. Preferably top-2. And even more preferably #1 dman. AND even more preferably not giving up much back and signing the player to 'Detroit discount'. Big top6 PF would be nice but that ain't gonna happen.

Surplus: Bottom 6 players. Wing prospects. Players who were at World War 1.

Tampa, Needs: Top 4 dman. RH if possible.

Surplus: forward prospects, small wingers.

Caps

Needs: hmm, new GM, maybe new owner.

Roster would need top6 winger.. What, someone said Semin?

Surplus: Grinders. And grinders. Bottom pairing pylons, to put it mildly.

Yes, but only if the winger is Demers' age and upside.

Toronto has all the wingers they need:

Kessel
Lupul
JVR
Kulemin
Frattin
MacArthur
Komarov

that's 7 playing in the top 9 with some youngsters on the way.

Leafs need a number one center and a veteran goalie.
