The defence needs an intimidating presence I think. Intimidating being the key word, someone to push back when a forward is in Price's face. That defence would look a whole lot better with a 6'5 nasty lunatic on the bottom pair.
I find Emelin pretty intimidating. He hits as hard as anybody in the NHL.
