It is pretty clear that our biggest problem on offense is the lack of a true right wing to play with Spezza. Given enough time I think Ryan and Spezza could gain that chemistry but because we have not had the type of start banking some points is the priority. I am all for going out and finding someone to fill that role. Michalek hasn't been great but I think he could turn it around. Maybe what is missing on that top line is a veteran who could help shoulder the role of top line minutes. Doesn't have to be an elite winger but someone who could be counted on to get 20 goals 30 assists. No one we have at the present can fill that role scoring wise. #11 would have been perfect for that role but he's gone. Seeing as we have a lot of prospects in the system we could probably get away with giving up not much in terms of assets that would affect our on ice product. I say if we are looking to hit a home run with it, dangle Anderson and a D to see what we can get. Otherwise I would see what a trade involving Cowen could fetch. Borocop is going to be Neil's replacement and plays the way Cowen should. Come next year we might be able graduate a player from within who will have gained more experience to fill that top line role. Quick bandaid = Prospal, gaborik, Jagr, Vrbata Longer term = Simmonds, Hornqvist, Parenteau Parenteau For Cowen would be a good fit for Both teams.
