I want to spend it to finally solve our problems on defense.

I'm with you on this one.

We could surely get a 3/4M$ defenceman. Top 4 sounds nice but a real #1 get 5-6M and 2nd pairing d get around 3-4. So you still haven't got a top pairing D at that price.
Overall I agree that getting a d-man will help a lot but getting an upgrade on Rivet/Souray at an affordable price will be way harder than you seem to think.

It never is. Like I mentionned if that was the one and only way to win the cup, Ottawa would have won already and Calgary would still be playing. No one has a can't lose recipe.
