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.
That's the whole point of having Brisebois at #7, so you don't have to rush kids like Subban...plus Carle is more advanced offensively than Subban anyways.
