2013 UFA D-Makeover?

A lot of talk about how in 2013 we can remake our forward corps, a lot of players coming off the books with Getzlaf, Perry, Iginla, Horton, Weiss, Clowe etc...

But another area our team could use serious important, Defence, could be addressed during this lock out as well.

Edler, Timonen, Visnevsky, Gonchar, Hainsey, Streit, Regehr, Whitney, Zidlicky, Hamrli, Scuderi, , Lydman, Leopold, White, Poti, Babchuk, Murray, Ference, Smid, Corvo, Rozsival, Sutton, Fistric, Hannan, Lilja, Zuler, Woywitka, O'Bryne etc

A lot of top 4 D-men available. It could be timely to added a key defensive piece.

I see it going one of two ways. A) We bring in someone to be a temporary #1 D, who can bump all our other D into more comfortable roles. B) We add some stop gap depth while Rielly, Finn, Blacker, Percy develope.

Edler I think would be a great add. He's 26, would fit right in age wise with our club. Would be a huge upgrade over Gunnarsson on the 1st pair, and would allow Gunnar to play an easier role with Gardiner.

Edler - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Gunnarsson
Liles/Blacker - Holzer
Komisarek, Liles/Blacker
