Although I have heard no other suggestions in pick-ups.
Pickups for what? Stopping the bleeding this season to the point where we can make the playoffs and then get nailed? Or pickups for the long term.

Leopold would (I hope to god at least) be an only for this season acquisition. If he costs a 3rd or less it may be worth exploring, but he probably does not. Volchenkov and Tallinder both provide higher levels of defensive play and could probably be had cheaper, Volchenkov especially. That's 2.

If we're looking long term, probably go all in for Smid in FA, maybe Scuderi. That's about the best fix we can get.
