Even W/o MacInnis, the Blues have a very solid D. Sal should be back in a week and Walker is expected to be back soon also (on the current road trip). Backman has filled in nicely.
I don't think the Blues need to sign anyone as they already have 11 D men on the roster (most out due to injury). (At least we have depth at the 5 + 6 position).
The only reason a team would need an extra D is if they have an injury (for the season) to a player or lacked quality at the position in the 1st place. With the economic situation, teams will be looking for bargains and the longer they hold out, the lower the asking price for a UFA.
Blues like the Wings will ride out the MacInnis and Hatcher injuries because they do have depth (though niether can be replaced in the organization, but no free agent available will fill those spots either).
