They have more d-men than they know what to do with. Brian Dumoulin, Joe Morrow, etc. We fill two big holes on defense and have a forward to replace whomever is traded. Make minor deals to unload other defenseman.
I don't care for the idea of trading away any of our core forwards but you are right we need more stay-at-home Defenseman especially ones that are willing to battle down low. Really even a good two-way Defenseman would be nice, so long as they are willing to trade blows to protect their goaltender rather than shying away when the heat is on.
