triple edit: Redden could be that #4 guy, totally forgot about him.
Meh, don't worry about it.

Blues fans tend to have a complex against the Red Wings and think there is some great rivalry there when it's mostly been the likes of Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, etc knocking our dicks in the dirt for the past twenty years. So now that the Blues are starting to be good again and the Red Wings are trending down some fans are just going to be obnoxious.

Anyway back to the D that you brought up. Ian Cole could be the top four we are looking for. He has all the tools we are looking for in a partner for Pietrangelo but has had problems with consistency so far. If he can start to show he can play at a consistent level this year then our D should be in really good shape. Would it nice to get a vet d-man for that role? Sure. But we are a budget team after all so it might be hard to find the right trade that we can afford in assets and actual salary.
