Someone who can play second PP and some Pk time.
Gorges should be paired up with Bouillon or Brisebois on the 3rd pairing
Hamrlik is averaging 21:57min/GP since the beginning of the year.
Hamrlik, Breezer, Cube and Gorges should be playing less?..

He's been a little worse than last year, but he's still solid. 22Min is good enough for him.

Minnesota have one of the best D in the league, in terms of top 4, it's very comparable to ours, except we only have Markov that's capable to play on our PP.
The real difference comes from their 5-6th Ds. Skoula/Bergeron average 19 and 17Min/Game, while Breezer/Bouillon put up 16Min each.

I think making all of our top 4Ds play a little less would be beneficial, so stronger 5-6th Ds are really what we need, like Skoula/Bergeron. The offensive production of Bergeron is also to be noted.
