Your tough minutes LH D to Jets

Quick story to set up the scenario for non-Jet fans.

I like Byfuglien. He is really an effective D, especially for the ~40 games paired up beside a quality guy like Enstrom. I think the Jets will eventually be looking to move him when/if Bogosian and Trouba develop to a strong 1-2 punch for the right side.

That said, I see the Jets future top4 as:
Enstrom - Bogosian <- high QoC with high OZS
??? - Trouba <- high QoC with high DZS

So, I'm looking for someone to fill that ??? as a #4.
Requirements are:
*relatively young (as this scenario takes place 3-4 years down the road)
*plays left side
*defensively stron
Does not need offensive prowess or crazy good... we're talking about a #4 shutdown guy.

I understand that the Jets aren't a great trading partner, as usually you trade away areas of excess depth for areas of need... and the Jets don't have much in excess except:
*trade deadline rentals (Hainsey, Antropov, Ponikarovsky, Wellwood)
*bottom 6 prospects (Machacek, Maxwell, Klingberg, Cormier)
*RH PMD 2nd-3rd pairing tweeners with PPQB prospects (Postma, Redmond, Clitsome[technically not a prospect but his ability is there])
....but just curious

I'm not talking about constrained to those guys... Just mentioned those are the most movable pieces.
