I think trading for a top defenseman is just stupid no matter who is moved.
A top four of kronwall and Ericsson or dekeyser and smith and whoever else is left would be great.
We just need Babcock to stop the smith Quincey failure of a line.
Then bottom line can EASILY be filled internally.
Our biggest issue and has been for awhile is scoring. We have not one too notch winger on this team. In the future maybe with our young guys but none right now. We do have plenty of second third and fourth line wingers though.
I agree our biggest issue is scoring, but I believe our biggest issue is we aren't generating/sustaining offense because of our blueline. The style of play that this team is focused on needs dmen who not only join the rush, but ones who create and maintain it. Our blueline scoring is way down over the past three years... and so is our scoring as a team.
