You just need depth at decent value.
Here's my serious attempt without adding Parise.

Of course, I'm banking on Cleary having a full recovery and Nyquist performing well, but there you have scoring depth. I think they just need another center and a winger like Jones to fulfill that without spending a lot on one person.
What's so special about this team over the one we have now?
David Jones? Isn't he at the bottom of the ocean somewhere?
