I still don't understand why Carbo doesn't put Lang in the slot, and instead keeps him more on the sideboards. Isn't that the reason we traded for Lang? An offensive minded right handed centreman with a good shot?

The Habs don't have the big guns at the point anymore...everyone knows it. so start thinking about new looks, and not just new personnel!

I would even try the Canada WJC approach where they have Subban as a rover. Markov obviously would be Ellis. Kovalev and kostitsyn can handle the puck on the side boards ala hodgson and tavares. Lang can kinda rove in the high slot and try and space himself for a shot (Subban's role on Team Canada), and someone else could play the Eberle role of screening the goalie/crashing the net...D'Agostini, Pacioretty and Latendresse have been our only skilled forwards who have shown a willingness to do so, so I would go with one of them.

Carbo's line juggling has done NOTHING...time to mix things up a little more.
