Latendresse - Koivu - Tanguay
Higgins - Lang - S.Kostitsyn
Kostopoulos - Chipchura - Laraque
*Begin, Dandenault, Lapierre

Markov - Komisarek
Hamrlik - Top-4 D
Bouillon - Gorges
*O'Byrne, Brisebois

Gorges IS a Top-4 defenseman, in my opinion. The only reason that O'Byrne has more minutes right now is because Gorges is paired with Brisebois, who is our weakest defenseman at this point.

Maybe others don't feel Gorges is capable of that position, but I sure do. I think he's fantastic.
