During the Offseason I think it would be fun to create lists or have some fun creating a list of the top players or something

There have already been a few comments by 2 people other than me so here is a quick list of topics I'd like to discuss:

-how to add defense to WIN considering it isn't a particularly attractive destination
-how to add centers to MIN
-how to add offensive to ARI
-where RNH could land if he decides to leave EDM
-what a realistic CLB rebuild would look like
-the upcoming draft
-the upcoming FA class

They have some decent young prospects that could help. I don't get why Laine wasn't traded for a dman but whatever maybe trade Dubois. Or try for Hamilton maybe he would like it there?
-how to add centers to MIN
Eichel
-how to add offensive to ARI
Not sure, the franchise is kind of in a horrible spot
-where RNH could land if he decides to leave EDM
-what a realistic CLB rebuild would look like
-the upcoming draft
Sabres are first baby. Powers looked good recently
-the upcoming FA class
Sabres shouldn't sign anyone major IMO unless its Hamilton or another RD. or a young player.

Over obviously...

He’ll hopefully get signed by Vancouver.

Agreed. That's some Benning bait right there.

Trade for Seth Jones (sign and trade)
Get Eichel/Reinhart or be patient. Rossi might be ready in 1-2 years.
They gotta rebuild. Blow it up.
Vancouver
Trade Seth Jones to LA (extension) for Vilardi + 8th pick. Draft Johnson and Clarke. Sign Danult. Tank in 2022-24
1. Power 2. Beniers 3. Guenther 4. LUKE 5. Clarke 6. Edvinsson 7. Wallstedt 8. Johnson 9. Lysell 10. McTavish
Ovi to NJ (in my dreams), I think most of the big name free agents stay, the mid tier free agents will sign with new teams
