We need to trade for a top 4 d, not worry about some middle of the road prospect.
I don't see how you can say that. Strait played quite well for us last year... certainly a hell of a lot better than Lovejoy did. And is younger with more upside. Lovejoy will never ever be more than a 7th/8th D for us. Strait can be a 7th guy, but still has potential to be much more.
