there really isnt anyone on this team id consider a whipping boy that we'd need to upgrade them. all 6 D are quite strong.
If Sauer was healthy, I would agree. But you currently have Girardi-McD playing over 25 minutes a game (in the regular season). This is a recipe for disaster.
Ideally, you need a veteran former top 4 playing a 5-6 role (ex. Kubina, Hamrlik-like player). They can play over 20 minutes in a pinch, albeit not for long stretches. That's much better than relying on a Bickel/Woywitka in case of the inevitable playoff injuries.
