Staal, Girardi, McDonagh and Sauer has to be the best top 4 in the league defensively (offensive skills not included). Being able to roll out those two pairs at 22+ mins a night each is a nightmare for the opposition.
With sauer back I think we'd have 5 dmen that can played 25 minutes in a game, adding del zotto to your list. Only guy that isn't a top 4 guy is stralman

Be nice to have a 3rd pair that can play big minutes to give mcdonagh and girardi a break....but even more it would be nice to not have to worry about matchups cause we have good dmen on at all times
