Mara might be that guy, but I'm not opposed to looking elsewhere for a <1m guy also. Weber sucks, and needs to be traded or something, he's not an NHL dman.
At this point, our D is better off with Markov, Subban, and Wisniewski than with Weber. And when you keep the first 3, there is no room for a guy like Yannick. The rest of the D needs to be better in our end, bigger, tougher. Guys like Hamrlik, Gorges, and Gill, for example.

I'm all for trading Weber to improve the offense. Mara, to me, makes a fine #6/7, who shouldn't cost too much on the cap.

Markov - Gorges
Gill - Subban
Hamrlik - Wisniewski

Would be a phenomenal defense next year IMO, if it could fit under the cap somehow.
