I don't see it as Knee-jerk at all. I see it as acquiring depth on the blueline when your top two d-men are older, thus more susceptible to injury (especially Pronger).]

Adding a Hannan type would help the team through this injury string, as well as add depth for a deep run, or alternatively, provide a replacement if the team decided to shop and trade someone like Carle.

Depth would look like:

Pronger - Timonen
Coburn - Carle
Meszaros - Addition
Lilja - Gus
Walker - Bart - (Will be waiver exempt in the playoffs IIRC)
Bourdon - Marshall
