    The thing is with that scenario is you're asking the scouting department the impossible to rebuild the core without top picks. I'm a "tanker" or pro-rebuild through and through but we're at a point where we're too good to get a high pick but not good enough to be a big threat in the post-season.

    Adding one of Panarin, Stone, Karlsson without giving up any assets in return except for cap space, is essentially getting a top pick. I'd normally agree if we were talking your run-of-the mill UFAs but guys like that who are among the best at their position and typically never hit free agency, they're well worth the money.

    That lineup, if all you do is simply keep adding late round picks to it, unless you really and I mean really knock one out of the park, will never take the step from good to great by the time Weber and Price are too old to be as effective.

    If we somehow manage to get Stone, he needs to play with Kotka. Perfect match and mentor for him

    Drouin - Kotkaniemi - Armia.
    Domi - Danault - Gallagher.
    Byron - Poehling - Suzuki.
    Shaw - ??? - Lehkonen. (Maybe Lehkonen traded for a young D).

    I hate leaving Armia off these potential lineups but we have so much young talent coming in. We’ll miss him a lot of if we let him go.

    Romanov can't play here next year buddy, contract with KHL.

    Someone up mentioned MB should take a nap but I disagree because that defense corp as it is will still be borderline sucky next season. That is where he needs to do something

    Certainly would't give away prospects,but maybe a FA signing or 2,lots of cap space.Plus,so many potential prospects that could conceivable make it.Already they have 10 spots that are more than decent.

    My bad , forgot about the khl thing . and agree he should try to upgrade the D. Did the lines off what we have now and in the system but would love an upgrade on D for sure.

    We are 8th OV.. When we were supposed to be bottom feeders. Reallly. Anything is possible and if they keep their momentum going into the playoffs.. I can see them going 2nd round atleast.

    Yeah we've only been hearing it for the last 7 years... Magic beans n' unicorns, that's nice and all but it's not much of a plan. Time for them to commit to something, whether it's a full-on rebuild or spending big money.

    Okay so we make the 2nd round. Great. Then what? Those three potential UFAs are exactly the kind of players that can push a team from good (i.e. 2nd round exit) to great (finals). How do you propose acquiring said high end player if it's not through free agency nor a high pick, which also doesn't involve a ton of assets going the other way?
