Wish List: A top shut-down defenseman
Dallas has been a pleasant surprise this season and sits just outside of the playoff picture at the moment.
One big reason they haven't been able to stay in the top eight is the fact they give up a lot of shots.
In fact, Dallas gives up the fourth-most shots per game with 31.6, relying very heavily on Kari Lehtonen to keep them in games.
Going out and getting a top-level, shut-down defender might help to lessen this number, or at least lessen the quality of the shots coming in.
There could be a couple of very good blue-liners available come the trade deadline.
