11 Forwards, 7 Defensemen.

I was reading the PGT tonight and I noticed a few "Gill vs Bergeron" comments. I also read some "Bergeron has screwed the bottom 6" comments. What we have are 2 specialists. One PP specialist and one PP/5v3 specialist.

What I don't understand is why we don't play 7 D... is Martin too lazy to figure out which top 6 forward is on his game on any given night and double shift him on the 4th?

IMO, this issue comes down to 1 thing: The situation on the ice.
If we're on the PP, Bergy plays.
If we're on the PK, Gill plays.
Split their 5v5 time.
Double shift the hottest forward top 6 forward on the 4th line.

Does anyone else see the incredible simplicity in this plan or have I completely lost my mind?

Goodnight Montreal, and good luck.
