So my off-season priorities were to upgrade the coach and the D.

Add a capable d-man via trading a pick or UFA and I am OK going into next season under Housley's attacking style with this young, big and fast starting lineup:

O'Reilly Eichel AAAAA
Kane Reinhart BBBBB
Foligno Larsson Gionta (or similar vet)
Bailey CCCCC Baptiste

Bogosian Ristolainen
McCabe DDDDD
Beaulieu Antipin

Lehner
Ullmark

AAAAA is Nylander, Girgensons, Baptiste or Okposo
BBBBB is Okposo or a rejuvenated Ennis
CCCCC is Girgensons or a smart veteran UFA who can skate.
DDDDD is an acquisition who is strong in his own zone.

Fasching and Guhle are my first call ups.
Falk and DLo my Black Aces
Moulson and Gorges (and maybe Ennis) are traded or, more likely, waived.

Gionta graciously passes the C to Jack, with ROR and Kyle as assistants.

I trade 8 and Ennis to Vancouver for Tanev
Or 8 and Ennis to Minnesota for Brodin and Pominville (and slide him into Gionta's slot)
Or a secondish for Nate Schmidt or Marco Scandella....

Some Minnesota fans liked the idea of 37 + Pu for Scandella, would you do that?

I'd rather a third or another second than Pu, or the lower second with Pu.
But I think the value is there.

Other thing is with that lineup, instead of a trade I'm open to signing Alzner at something like $16 over four, which is probably more than he deserves, but still probably won't be enough.
