76th in Hits. 85th in Blocks, 86th in takeaways. Not great numbers. Definitely not a Carbo type D man

Our defensemen Markov, Hamr and Komi ranked 1st 10th and 11th in giveaways, which is terrible. We need to improve there. Guess who was ranked 12th?
They have a ton of giveaways because that's how the habs play. They ask their d-men to start the offence, so it's normal that in the tons of passes they make some of them get caught by the other team. Would you prefer a defensive core like Boston who doesn't give any puck away but has absolutely no transition game?

We got an excellent defence, that's why Gainey isn't really looking for a big time UFA defenceman. I don't understand the amount of critizism the defence get...
