Moen - White - A true big and nasty 4th liner for god sake

Markov - Emelin
Subban - Gorges
Diaz - Kaberle
If ever assembled, that line would be terrible. Neither Gio or Bourque ever make a decent pass and Plekanec isn't creative enough to feed 2 unidimensional average wingers towards being a decent 2nd line.

I don't know what Gauthier had in mind in his presser when he talked about turning it around very quick (and I hope he's not gonna be given a chance to do it himself) but I really don't like what I foresee for next season tus far : Gio is declining, Bourque looks terrible, there is no top6 material ready to step up. We suck
