The Habs D is fine in theory...

Markov-Gorges
Spacek-Subban

Solid top 4 with a potential all star on the ice for up to 50 minutes a game.

Bottom pairing is between Gill, Emelin, Weber to fight for the 5-7 spots, and maybe Woywitka or Diaz making a case for one of those roster spots too (or NHL capable injury reserve in the AHL at least).

There are risks of course... Markov's health #1. I think Spacek will have a bounce back year on the left side, but who can say for sure, he could go through rough stretches. I don't like the Gill resigning, guy is barely a NHL player, overrated cuz he is popular & Subban covered up a lot of his screw ups, but I guess the Habs didn't have much of a choice with the far superior Hamrlik insisting on a 2 year contract (which he got). Gill on the 3rd pairing will be much more exposed with a non all-star partner. The rookies Emelin and Weber may surprise, but are more likely to struggle with ups & downs.
