Define #1 D-man for me. Identify guys who fit your definition, and then average their salaries.
I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying that with Bouchard's albatross contract and Parrish's buyout, we've got 5mil that's just sitting there. That'd pay for a #1 guy or a top-6 forward.
Keep in mind, this article was written about our strength at D and how we might leverage that to improve our forward depth.
