Subban's in a tough spot this year because he's being called on to be our best offensive d-man as well as defensive. I think that he'll be allowed to play a bit more like himself with Gorges alongside him. As far as the other D pairings are concerned, we're really in "cross our fingers" mode. It's not that that Diaz, Emelin, and Weber aren't good--its just that they're so inexperienced. It will really be up to Price to hold down the fort the first month or 2. If he's not we're going to be in trouble i think, but i'm confident he can be a difference maker.
