Moving Wellwood would barely clear the space, as you still have to replace that roster spot in the lineup... maybe Demitra will be on LTIR for a while... I can't see any other possibilites unless you're dealing Bieksa, but I don't think that helps our defense overall.
trade Lukowich for a 5-7th round pick. Bury Wellwood in the minors, go with Hodgson in his place. And Hansen at .550 as a 13th forward probably gets us there. Could also see what a package of Wellwood and Lukowich nets us in a trade.
