Do you think the team will address scoring/center needs and maybe a heavier dman via Trade before or at the draft?
wait till FA
list your off season plan for the team below:
Use money for:
****Stastny and if not him via free agency i say you try a low risk high reward with Brad Richards
****Brooks Orpik or Douglas Murray or Willie Mitchell
you look at a team like LA they're very heavy on D and Jackman would be our most physical dman day in and out. Don't give me the crap polak is physical all the time yes he's super strong but he doesn't always play like it.
****also wouldn't mind to bring in a big body like Brian Boyle. You notice teams like Chicago (Bickell), LA (King, Carter, Penner when he was there), Boston (Lucic) all have a big guy and they all do great in playoff hockey.
Now if we have to trade i would rather go for a Kesler and hypothetically and i doubt hes available but i would love Malkin. I think Spezza is way to injury prone and yes kesler is but two different players.
