This is where ownership steps in and says: if worse comes to worse, we'll eat Sopel's $2M left on his contract in WBS if it means we get Versteeg.
We could use Sopel on our third pairing, though. His 2 million cap hit isn't higher than what we would have to pay for Leopold or Eaton. I'd take a chance with Sopel and go with that defense:

Orpik - Letang
Michalek (hopefully) - Goligoski
Leopold/Eaton (sign one of them) - Sopel
