Take away the best player and face of the franchise for the team in the 8th spot, our most probable spot if we were to make the playoffs, while ALSO giving us a very good player. I would agree that taking a player from a likely eight seed is the most likely to get us in the playoffs.
Eddie Shore easily. I feel like as amazing as he has been so far, he's just going to keep improving and REALLY be able to take the team to the next level. As long as he isn't too distracted or his head isn't in the game, what with the whole boxing thing (I hope that Ross doesn't give his blessings) I think he could turn this team around over night. Keep his head in the game, don't do something stupid to get a fine, etc.
