The cost is going to be too high.

We all wanted Jay McKee after his big playoff run with Buffalo too, and he ended up getting $4M per year from St. Louis.

These are teams that had the personnel for long playoff drives, but lacked shutdown d-men. Suddenly an average d-man steps up when all the attention is focused on his team, and he becomes perceived as a stud.

I like Orpik and all, but if it's going to cost $4M-$5M, I'll pass. Anyway, if we need a d-man for the coming year, it's to fill a hole on the powerplay left by Streit. In the long-term, our cupboard is full.
