vasyunov isn't he known for his offense, but no D whatsoever...
quite frankly we have enough guys who need work on their D coming in ( osullivan, pouliot, voloshenko) and bouchard, and gaborik aren't exactly D stallwarts.
I'd like to see them get a forward at 9 and D man at 17. Although wild have skill players coming in * see above* they could use a gritty player like okposo at 9 who will fight in the corners and go to the net.
Also at 17 maybe Chris Stewart, tough kid, powerforward type.
we need another true center, someone like koivu...pmb, sully, pouliot are all listed as centers, but they are better off on the wing- I think Peter Mueller would be a perfect fit. I dont really know about Brassard's defensive awareness, or Bryan Little...but we need a pivot for all these talented wingers.
although I guess veteran centers can be acquired via trades and FA...
Defensively we need someone who can contribute offensively as well as being solid in his own end...Perhaps we take a project in David Fischer, or reach on a Brian Strait or Jamie McBain...or perhaps take a Sanguinetti or Vishnevsky or Mathieu Carle and teach them to work on their own end.
It's pretty hard not to root for the Oilers; you gotta love what Roloson has done for them. I could cheer for Buffalo over them, but I'd choose the Oil over the Ducks or the Canes anyday, 30th pick or not.
