Now, I don't know what they are looking to do, but if they have the space, a team like Buffalo might take a shot for a mid-round pick to have a nice upgrade on the blueline. It gives them a shot to better their defense and see how Mez does. If he plays well and stays healthy, then they can re-sign him and let Tallinder walk if they so choose and maybe Risto or Zad will be up the following year.

It doesn't actually have to be a team that has five defenseman and needs a sixth to make a trade. Teams are always looking to upgrade.
I hope none of these hypothetical teams watched last night's game.
