D prospects [depth chart]

I've been hearing that we are lacking in defensemen depth, as far as prospects are concerned... I don,t see much of a problem, personally:

Andrei Markov
Sheldon Souray
Ron Hainsey
François Beauchemin
Matt Shasby
Oskari Korpikari
Tomas Linhart
Ryan Glenn

Michael Komisarek
Andrew Archer
Konstantin Korneev
Mark Flood
Ryan O'Byrne

It's a given that not everyone of those will develop into an NHLer, but I feel we're deep at D. We could really concentrate on building a solid nucleus upfront... IMO, the LD is set (Markov and Souray are already good, one of Hainsey, Beauchemin, Shasby, Korpikari, Linhart or Glenn should be able to become a 6th D) and we have Komisarek who should become very good... We could fill the rest with veteran help (Rivet could be one) so that leaves one spot, only.

I don't know if it interests anyone.. but it just stroke me when I read (somewhere ) that we should trade Ribeiro for a RD. It's the least of my concerns... we should trade Ribeiro [if we ever end up trading him] in a package for a young player with size and skills.
