There will be solid defensemen come free agency.
That's like the Pens saying they should go find a good young winger in FA...

FA almost always forces teams to pay too much money for a player that isn't worth his contract.

Why didn't Dallas just sign an offensive blueliner in FA this Summer if it is that easy to find one at a good price?

There aren't any Benn or Gogos floating around in FA. They are always locked up long before they can hit UFA.
