    Realistically we're missing a top pairing LHD and a 1C and 2C. Those are big pieces.

    Another top 4 LHD would be nice too.

    Yes . . . and we're missing more than that. Watch the Pens and Preds. and you'll see we're years away from them. Years.

    Yeah, we get a top pairing LHD, a 1 and 2 center and a top 4 defenseman and that makes us a average team in the playoffs.

    The elite ones would still eat us.

    Crosby and company are more or less doing what Lebron and company have done to the NBA for the past few seasons. Made the conference insanely hard to get out of.

    All that plus 1 more top 6 scorer

    All the above are your core players .....we have mainly the secondary support pieces

    That why our task every summer is monumental

    Its pathetic how weak we are in all areas . Even watching the depth of non dominant but good teams like Columbus .....we arent in their league.

    I don't really think we need much more than that, except for a new coach as well, ours is past due.

    We're set in goal, we have plenty of wingers. We're missing 2 centers and 2 D.

    Max-1C-Galchenyuk
    Drouin-2C-Gallagher
    Lehkonen-Danault-Byron
    Hudon-DLR-Shaw
    Sherback, Deslauriers

    LHD-Weber
    LHD-Petry
    Mete-Juulsen
    (Alzner, Benn, Schlemko, Lernout, Reilly)

    Price
    Niemi

    It's a pretty good lineup if we find the right pieces to plug in the giant holes.

    Even if Max is traded, it's still a good lineup. Is it good enough to beat Pittsburgh? Hard to say, maybe not, no team have been able to do it in the last 2 years. But it would definitely be good enough to seriously compete.

    Yeah...how to fill those holes? No prospects. No free agents of worth coming here. A scouting department that hasn't delivered in years, and a development system in Laval that is a raging tire fire.

    Those 4 holes might as well be 23.

    Bergevin has never been able to fill major holes via trade. Subban vs Weber and Sergachev vs Drouin did nothing to get us closer to the Cup.

    Oh I completely agree. I was just saying we don't need half a team, we need 3-4 major players in critical positions.

    I'm not, have you seen the size of those holes? We would need to fill them without creating new ones.

    That being said, let's say we do the rumored trade with Minny, sign Tavares and draft Dahlin (I'm dreaming I know), things suddenly don't look so bad.

    Drouin-Tavares-Gallagher
    Lehkonen-Eriksson Ek-Coyle
    Byron-Danault-Shaw
    Hudon-DLR-Sherbak
    Deslauriers

    Brodin-Weber
    Dahlin-Petry
    Mete-Juulsen
    (Alzner, Benn, Schlemko, Lernout, Reilly)

    Price
    Niemi

    Second line is still a bit weak though.

    that is half a team. add 4 impact players to the 4-5 we already have. Sprinkle in Danaults and Byrons as needed.

    No prospects? Poehling and Evans say hello. Poehling especially is getting great reviews so far. Evans is not far behind. Have a little faith dude and a bit less negativity. If Markov and Radulov would have stayed we probably would be watching playoff hockey right now.
