I keep saying it but ill say it again. We need a big shut down defenseman that we can throw in to close out games, play the PK and shut down the other teams top forwards and clear the crease. Fighting is a bonus but not looking for a goon, just one tough sob.

Missing Emelin has really changed the look of our defence and the team as a result. Can't have enough toughness on the back end.

Some ideas are guys like Scuderi, Stuart, Orpik etc. I don't pretend to be an NHL scout but I'd definitely want guys of that ilk to fill in the D and teach our prospects like Tinordi, Pateryn, Thrower etc to develop.
