Gilroy and Del Zotto are both supposed offensive defensemen who do not consistently provide offense and both probably should be playing in the AHL.
Sauer and McDonagh are simple, no frills defensemen men.
Staal and Girardi are excellent defensive defensemen who do not consistently provide offense.
I understand the need for a veteran defenseman, I've been calling for one since the Rozsival trade happened (not that I was a big proponent of trading Rozsival in the first place). But I don't see Tyutin as being the vet defenseman who adds a new dimension to the blueline in that he's not an offensive stud and not a bruising physical player.
