Sure, he signed Emelin but here we are on a thread talking about Emelin not getting playing time.
I agree that hockey is not one dimensional. You need your shut down DMen. Check, we have that. You need your playmakers. Check, we have that. You need your physical DMen. Check, ooops, we dont have that. He is press boxed.
Physicality lately has been the least dimension used in Montreal. And, Gauthier is in charge of that. Carriere is his Assistant GM/non coach Assistant Coach.
Finally, I laugh about all of the players that we have "in the future". Until Tinordi is playing regular shifts for the Habs, he is simply wishful thinking.
Exactly. Gauthier went and get Kaberle cause he 1 realized he ****ed up in the Markov signing and 2 Diaz and Weber can't handle that job which is fine. They are young and have to learn. We have players that will do what Diaz will(offensively) but we don't have a physical D man which he should be playing ahead of Diaz
