It won't cost that much as there are some RH D that are available that can do that.

Hannan, Jurchina, Staios. Those are names that need to be brought up by the management group here and talked to right away. They will go off the market quick if you are late to the party on July 1.
Agree with all of this, except that Hannan plays LD and I have little interest in Staios. Bryan Allen is a good name to look at too. If you're thinking about Hannan, you may as well look at Aucoin too.

Also, I wouldn't discount the idea that Bickel could improve next season. He's just before the period of time I consider to be most defensemen's prime. He could improve next season too.
