Ryan Suter (who wouldn't go for him?)

Jay Bouwmeester (probably wrong on that one)

Justin Schultz (Everyone was in on that)
Yeah, that pretty much covers the plan. I think Bouwmeester was less of target given what it would cost to sign/trade for him. Both Suter and Schultz could be acquired for nothing other than cap space. However we ended up getting Carlo Colaiacovo so I'm pretty sure we are all set on defense!
