Barring that, Emelin is now officially our 7th defenseman.
Have these first few weeks of the season and even the O'Byrne trade of last year taught you nothing or even remind you of something you previously knew? Defensive depth has been killing the Habs this season and did for a little while after the O'B trade. Spacek is needed even if he works his way into the press box, he has this season only left on his contract, trading him now for a pick would be ridiculous, unless of course there's another veteran, minute munching defenseman acquired. Even if by the trade deadline, Markov is back and playing great, Campoli too, I would still not deal him if the Habs are a playoff team.
Hopefully I didn't sound like a jerk, wasn't trying to pick on you but depth is always needed IMO.
