You can plug around them and still be outstanding.

Where I see a big need for Pitt is a LH dman for the top 4 who can QB the 2nd unit PP, that has good puck moving skills and can show a serious physical presence.

It would allow Pitt to spread out a little more on the PP, and have 2 outstanding units. Not to mention everything Edler bring in terms of puck moving, puck possession, physicality and 5 on 5 play.

Edit: I dont see D as an organizational strength, with all due respect. I see Pitt as being logjammed with up and coming bottom pairing Dmen.
You are obviously not looking very hard. Morrow, Despres, Harrington all are more than bottom pair guys.
