Pick your poison!

Roll the dice trying to acquire a #1D via trade or stay patient and accept mediocrity for another 2 - 5 of years. There is no guarantee that a rebuild/retooling from within will ever yield a real #1D in the foreseeable future though.
If we want to acquire a#1 defenseman it would most certainly cost an arm and a leg.

But, it is not necessary to have a #1 defenseman to win a Stanley cup. We just need a couple of really solid defenseman. Sure, it would be nice to have a amazing defenseman like Pietrangelo, Subban, or Keith back there, but I would not consider it necessary. I am perfectly content with being patient.
