If we can pair a two-way guy with Pitkanen who can make up for some defensive mistakes, that would be ideal.

Gleason Faulk
Pitkanen XX
Harrison McBain

Guys that come to mind are:
Matt Niskanan
Cody Franson
Jason Demers
Justin Braun
Yannick Weber
I'm sure there are more..

I know a lot of Canes fans want Murray. I wouldn't hate it, but that basically solidifies the paring of Pitkanen and McBain, something I'm not a fan of.

As far as what the Canes have to give up: basically anything that's not Skinner, E.Staal, J.Staal, Semin, Pitkanen, Gleason, Faulk, and Harrison.

Jason Demers and Justin Braun interest me. What would it take to get one those players?
I think Pittsburgh needs Niskanen. Other than that, are any of those guys you listed evan a viable a top 4 defender? (and Demers is out 4-6 weeks) They all seem like 5/6/7 guys to me.
