Habs need to graduate one more puck-moving D... now

Just saw that Gonchar hurt his shoulder, and the Pens are having to press Letang into service as PP general and squeeze the most out of Sydor.

Shows how vulnerable any team is if its premier puck-moving / PP general defenceman goes down.

With Streit having moved on, the case can be made that the Habs should be looking for a way to graduate another puckmover, over anyone else. Whoever the best of Weber, Subban, Carle it is.

If Markov goes down this year or the next, this thread will be revisited.

My own opinion: bring up Subban now, for good. On the 2nd PP, he can learn on the job.
