Both, are you serious?

We'll trade for or likely sign a top four defensmen.
Lord knows there will be a ton of them out there.
Aucoin, Hamrlik, Zhitnik, Foote, etc etc.

Let's say we sign Hamrlik.

You then go:

Johnsson - Markov
Hamrlik - Pitkanen
Desjardins - Seidenberg

Very solid defense right there.

Compared to:

Johnsson - Markov
Desjardins - Pitkanen
Seidenberg - Timander


We'll add a top four defensmen.
You can't lose guys like Ragnarsson and Malakhov and not do so.

You do remember there will be a salary cap. What makes you think Hamrlik is better than Desjardins? Hamrlik had a horrible season in 2004. Desjardins is more of a top 4 d-man than Hamrlik is now. Desjardins will also cost less.
