I wouldn't mind Stuart for the bottom pairing L side D, and Greene for R side as a plan B if we strike out on bringing in any actual top 4 dmen. Roll something like this next year:

Ference-Schultz
Marincin-Petry
Stuart-Greene

Hopefully Marincin progresses within a year or two to the point where you can switch him and Ference. Ideally next year we bring in Markov and Girardi through UFA and roll this:

Markov-Girardi
Ference-Schultz
Marincin-Petry

Let Marinicin develop properly and work his way up the roster.

Edit: After looking at the UFA list again I think our two targets who may not be top end guys but would help should be Morris and Phillips. I think these two are realistic and won't cost an arm and a leg. They'll also bring some more vet experience which we desperately need. Roll with this D next year:

Phillips-Schultz
Marincin-Petry
Ference-Morris(Shut Down pairing)
Fedun
