Competition is better. With the top 4 set in stone, you want to bring in players that will compete with the guys you already have. I would like to see Staios or Jurchina signed.
Also, I confuse the handedness of Sarich and Hannan, both on Calgary last season and both UFA's. He's another guy worth taking a look at.
Also, there are only so many RH shots on defense in the NHL. 70% are LH so most teams have 1 or 2 guys playing on the right side with a left handed shot. I'd like a quality NHL veteran for the 6th spot and have him compete with Bickel who can get better, but I'd like to see someone proven.
