Picking up a real #4 would be nice, but looking around the league it's probably not an easy thing to do. Not many teams should be sellers yet. Mind you, once the deadline comes and the bidding wars open up, the prices probably increase. Tough call. We might end up just having to grit our teeth and live with one relative weakness.
I agree with that, trading for a guy right now would cost a ridiculous price. Obviously the team is doing well with the d-men currently in place. O'byrne is struggling the last 2 games no doubt, but he had a strong start before that, he should rebound. I'm sure that bad ice doesn't help, last night it looked like a tennis ball at times, it makes it hard for d-men.
