With the new National Hockey League season already underway and every indication that the Montreal Canadiens will be adding a defenseman, check out the list of top defensemen still available on the free agent market at the bottom of the article.

The acquisition of this famous additional defenseman could indeed go through a trade:


It could also go through waivers, but if Kent Hughes ever wanted to add a veteran on the cheap, and without having to give anything in return, here are his options:


1. P.K. Subban - right-handed defenseman
2. Anton Stralman - right-handed defenseman
3. Kris Russell - left-handed defenceman
4. Keith Yandle - left-handed defender
5. Calvin de Haan - left handed defender
6. Zdeno Chara - left-handed defender
7. Nathan Beaulieu - left-handed defenseman
8. Danny DeKeyser - left-handed defenseman
