why so many votes for weber? our top 4 defence is among the top of the league... and landing weber and his contract would mean saying goodbye to bieksa, edler, or hamhuis.
really, i dont get it guys... the thread is "who would be the best fit" - weber is probly the best player on the list, but not the best fit. defence wasnt our problem against LA.
sedin sedin nash
booth kesler higgins
burrows pahlsson hansen
best top line in the NHL - and our depth is extremely improved with burrows on the checking line, which becomes a pretty intense looking shutdown line.
I would switch Higgins to the 3rd line and put Burrows on the 2nd line with Kesler. Other than that I like it.
We have a bunch of defense prospects that are going to either be worked into the lineup or end up being traded like Hodgson. They have to see that they have a chance to play in the NHL or will want to move on to another team that will play them.
At the forward position, we are thin as far as NHL prospects that are likely to become NHL regulars anytime soon whereas Sauve, Connaughton and Gragiani are close. Even if they are not a best fit, develop them like Hodgson and trade them for a player that does fit...that won't happen if they are in Chicago.
And yes, Nash is exactly what we need on the 1st line.....besides if we don't get a big forward like him, a team like SJ will. Anahiem...big 1st line, S Jose...Thorton/ Nash....
