We have defensive depth.......Weber and Diaz. And they need to remain depth in Hamilton. Kaberle is too expensive to be considered depth but he is not an ideal DMan for this team. So we are stuck with Kaberle unless he is traded.
The Habs need an experienced and solid DMan added before the season starts. I would be pleased as hell if Bergy signed Carlo Colaiacovo.
All those young guys are a year older. Plus Bouillon over Campoli is a big step up.
Also, much better chance that Markov is an impact guy for the team next year.
Diaz proved last year he can play a regular shift on defence (poor offence, coaching and inexperience did this team in) and Weber still has some NHL potential this season and beyond.
