I'd be fine with a third-pairing puckmover. That'd give us at least an added dimension that isn't there right now. You're right though, I think the only hope for a top-four defender at this point is to either trade for one or just throw Barrie/Elliott into the fire and quit shoving them into the press box every time they have a bad game.

Avs should be burning up the phonelines to see what the Habs want for Yannick Weber. If he costs roughly what O'Byrne did the deal should be done yesterday. But I'm guessing it'd take a little more than that.
