I wouldn't mind running something like:

Smid-Petry
Volchenkov- JSchultz
Fistric-Ference/Scuderi/Lydman

And then who knows, if Klefbom plays lights out in camp we could give him Fistric's spot. If not, the a year or so of AHL for Klef till he is ready.
My understanding is that the version of Volchenkov you described is long gone.

The one you described is the type of D-man I'd love on this team, but that version of Volchenkov hasn't been seen in New Jersey for a long time.

I'd love to add a RHD defensive D-man this offseason (I have it in my mind that we add Yandle or some other LHD puck mover), but finding one is always tough.
