There's definitely some decent options out there. But out of all the available free agents I think adding a guy like David Clarkson would be a perfect fit for what we need. The guy can score goals in bunches and is tough as nails. Put him on a line with Pavel or Hank and not only would he help out offensively but he would have their backs if any cheap dirty stuff goes down. What do you guys think? Who would you love to see Kenny sign the most?

I voted Clarkson just because he could be the net-front guy that we desperately need.

 

Raymond was my runner-up.

 

This team needs two things:

 

1. More crease crashers

2. More top-end speed

 

Clarckson brings the jam, Raymond brings the wheels.

Clarkson, without a doubt, for reasons already stated here.

Clarkson is my clear number 1. I have wanted Horton for a while too although im a bit concerned about his injury history now.

Clarkson, reasons already mentioned so if Holland needs to overpay to get him, just do it the guy will be worth it.

Stalberg fits both those criteria

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Penner could be a cheap solution to the size problem. I don't know if I would want him though

Clarkson for his toughness and grit. Easy Ryder for a true sniper

Raymond is fast, but he doesn't go to the net, is soft in the corners and brings nothing to the table come the playoffs. I wouldn't touch him.

If Iginla is available, I'd pursue him.  Especially if Pittsburgh doesn't win the Cup.

I think if Holland makes the right moves draft day, he can get himself TWO top 6 forwards...

Pascal Dupuis is a veteran on a hot streak. Pitt can't keep all those guys. Dupuis is only getting paid $1.5M right now and getting older, so he shouldn't expect anything outrageous (e.g., $4M or above). He's a consistently healthy guy who averages 40 points/season.

Clarkson is number 1 for me. Horton is a close second bit somehow I think he will be a Boston guy for a while.
