And Bourque is the only issue that wasn't dealt with today and that's no surprise.
The kind of bottom six I think they needed was what they had in 2010-11. Halpern, Moen, Darche, White, Desharnais, Pouilot and Eller. Guys that can either play defense or provide depth scoring. Montreal didn't do that well on getting that so far. They have some depth defense but no one but Eller and maybe if they get lucky Armstrong can score.
