3rd pairing defensemen? Sopel plays on Vancouver's top pairing with Ohlund.

And no, they can't sign Niedermayer as well as the Canucks can. Both Niedermayers have repeatedly and publically expressed interest in playing for Vancouver, in the province they grew up in, and an offensive based contender. If both teams offer player max why would Scott choose to play in Columbus?
