Just to throw some names out there:

Bieksa
Michalek
Wisniewski
White (free agent)
Polak
Niskanen
Robidas

If the team was willing to give up a lot more than what the OP offered:
Gudbranson
Bogosian

Quality RD are hard to come as 2/3 of all D are left shoots.
Polák would be tough to get from the Blues, but I wouldn't say he is 100% unavailable.
