These are both names I've mentioned before and guys I would absolutely love to see on this team. There are always a ton of guys like this that can be had relatively cheaply. Defensemen start getting expensive when they put up a ton of points. A stay at home guy who doesn't score much (especially one with size) would make the Wings harder to play against, and wouldn't cost much at all.
Pair this type of move with a top-six rental that would alleviate the logjam of middling forwards we currently have (Cleary, Abdelkader, Emmerton, Miller, and Eaves) Get Bert, Sammy, and Helm healthy, get into the playoffs, see what we've got, and I would be happy with this year.
(I'm easy to please.)
