I don't recall Detroit doing this at all unless you are counting Chelios, I don't follow the Pens 4-6 d-men close enough to remember.
And I mean, are you going to find NHLers and then stash them in the AHL? Even Bartulis, who people seem to like, is a -13, significantly worse than any d-man on our roster not named Coburn.
Best bet is to sacrifice goats so that Parent is healthy for the playoffs and work those 5 pretty hard with one of Syvret/Bartulis as a depth guy who plays 12ish minutes per game.
