McDonagh-Franson
Staal-Stralman
Moore-Allen/Falk

For the time being. So the glut of LD and lack of right D is solved by moving Del Zotto for a similar right D.
Exactly. I'm not a fan of Franson, but if you can land a 2nd pairing defender in a deal for Del Zotto, you can spread the minutes out more evenly amongst the defense for the remainder of the season.

There are plenty of options. Perhaps getting a young kid who can grow into bigger minutes is the best solution.
