Well, the Habs don't really do transition to begin with. PMDs won't help you if your default zone breakout scheme is "off the boards and out". If Andrei Markov of all people couldn't rescue the Habs' transition game last year, then what you have isn't a personnel problem.

You could add more PMDs back there if you want, I mean, a team never has too many PMDs, but that's not gonna fix the transition game, and certainly neither is Bieska. So while upgrades are desirable, I don't think there is a roster hole here.

Whereas the Habs are playing Tom bleeping Pyatt on their first line out of desperation right now. There's a personnel hole here.
