Petrovic
Brennan (you might not agree on this one, but he's looked really good so far)
Matheson

Then there's the possibility that Campbell keeps his high-end play up until close to his 40's, he could still be here when the kids would be ready for a serious run at the cup. Hell, look at how Chicago had their D when they won the cup:

Keith (drafted)
Seabrook (drafted)
Hjalmarsson (drafted)
Campbell (UFA)
Sopel (UFA)
Boynton (UFA)

We need a number one center more than a number one defenceman.
And of course you could still draft a defenseman in the 2nd round.
