We might do something like Lecavalier or St. Louis for Vlasic + though. Or just Lecavalier straight up (not that SJ need him, and it would probably take him + anyways)
They may be #1 d by default, but what leads you to believe they actually are #1 defensemen? Because, simply put for lack of a better phrase, you are not going to win a cup if they are your best defenseman. Top pairing dman is entirely different from a #1 defenseman.
