Your Team's Biggest Need

If tomorrow were the trading deadline and everyone is in contention for the playoffs (which almost everyone is), what would be the biggest need for your team to trade for?

For example,

Boston: A 2nd line center

Geritol and No-Doze, which could be substituted for Red Bull and vodka; so they can hang around for a full 60 minutes.

Pittsburgh:

Anyone not named Drake Berehowsky or Brian Holzinger. These two have either been invisible (Holzinger) or detrimental to the team's performance (Berehowsky).

Wings need a coach who actually COACHES. Lewis does not even talk on the bench, let alone draw up a strategy, react to changing on-ice situations, or motivate the team. Pathetic.

Defensemen and forwards who actually can play defense. What a concept.

Detroit:

a gritty forward or two who can play anywhere from the second to the fourth line. And a healthy blueline.
