Overall I think your team is ok.
Your C is nice with Marleau/Sharp/Pavelski and Roy = I would have like to seen at least 1 "elite" C here. = B+
Your W is easily your strongest position with Marleau/Sharp/Pavelski/Eriksson/Doan/Horton/Kostitsyn.
Nice balance and flexibility with solid depth. = A-
Your D is terrible and your worst position. Not one #1 or even #2 guy on your team. These guys won't see much PP time at all. Focus here first. Take some of your C/W strength to improve in this area. = D
Your G is decent as well. Bryzgalov should have a rock solid season, but I'm a little concern about the drop off after him.
Dallas could be in for a tough year and Lehtonen is injury prone. Rask is currently the #2 in Boston. While Rask will likely be the B's future tender, that doesn't really help you now. HOWEVER, if Thomas gets hurt, that's a different story all together. = B
Overall I think your team is a B to B+.

I wouldn't worry too much about trading for better defencemen--check the free agent pool first, and drop Lydman or Staal (depending on how his concussion recovery goes) first.
If you do decide to go the trade route, don't deal anyone other than Horton or Kostitsyn, unless you're getting something else in return--it's just not worth it.
