Injuries to the D on the Habs happen every single year. I'm not sure why that is, some say it's because of the style Martin demands, blocked shots, etc. Last year, we had to pick up Mara, Sopel, Picard and Wisniewski. The year before that we were relieved when Ryan O'Byrne came back from injury and picked up Jay Leech. In 2008-09 we went after Schneider, Bergeron.

I'm probably forgetting some.

Gill has missed 21 games in the past 2 seasons, Spacek has missed 31 games, Markov has missed 112 games, Gorges has missed 46 games, and Hamrlik has only missed 10 games, but he's the one who is gone.

BTW it was a thought experiment. I don't know *which* players will get injured. I just assume this team needs defensive depth.
