Ellerby right now is a bottom pairing d-man.
Depth d-men shouldn't be hard to acquire at the trade deadline, and they shouldn't cost a 2nd round pick.
I feel like we could get a much better defenseman with Toronto's 2nd round pick. (like Lydman for example)

It wouldn't be for this season, it would be for 2013/14. By that time I would hope he would be ready for a top 9 forward role.
I'm not expecting him to be a great 2nd liner, just someone who can grow into that role and mesh well with Kesler.
