I can't see a mid-season waiver claim/7th defenseman being the reason not to add a legitimate top 4 defenseman in the offseason.
I don't know if it's a good reason either, I'm throwing it out as a possibility that the guy creates a blocking issue since he's on a one way. We might argue that he shouldn't, but it's not impossible that he does.

Personally, I'd like Edmonton to add two top 4 D this summer, not one, but we'll see what happens. After this year's draft, I would imagine the team's focus will be shifting more to the present than it did a year ago.
