I would be on board with acquiring a veteran defenseman as well. Right now, Girardi is our most experienced defenseman in the playoffs with only 32 games played.

Recent cup winners have included defensemen that have far more playoff experience than those on our team... Chara and Kaberle on Boston, Campbell and Sopel on Chicago, Gonchar and Gill on Pitt, etc. We could definitely use a 3rd pairing defenseman with substantial playoff experience.
