Strait and Bortuzzo are both NHL-ready. They're reliable shutdown guys in the A and both played very well in their NHL call-ups. Unfortunately they're both waiver-eligible this year and caught in a logjam of underachieving vets (Orpik, Martin) and cheap upstarts (Niskanen, Engelland).

One will make the Pens this year, and one will likely be dealt or waived. People are divided as to which is the better bet. Either way, they'd be suitable options to replace Fistric in bottom-pair duty.
