Okay, so far we failed to sign the following defensemen:
John Michael Liles
We failed to sign the following forwards:
Brooks Orpik and Jason Smith.
For the position of Czar's Center:
Any of the above would be just fine with me. Trading away some draft picks for a young and effective center like O'Sullivan might be the best option, though I'd be elated with Demitra (very high-producing with Marian Gaborik; imagine how he'd be with Kovalchuk) or Morrison.
At this point, I should know enough not to hope.
