You probably can get him cheaper then that as well, but I could assure you that he would be near useless playing on a deep defensive team.
While this might have been true last year, the team has made some big strides on defense this offseason and has a pretty solid core working for them right now.

Wesley
Markov
Boughner
Hill
Ward
St. Jacques
Hedican
Wallin

While there are no superstars on that blueline, it is pretty deep and better than a lot of eastern conference teams. Hill is probably our #4 or #5 defenseman right now anyways.
