Do the Habs need defense depth?

O'Byrne maybe? After watching him (non-star, big, fairly fast, hits, blocks shots, sometimes looks awkward) get run out of town on a rail I worry what will happen to Tinordi. Watch Tinordi have a couple of awkward big guy moments and be flamed out.
O'Byrne may not be great but he was exactly what the habs needed last year. And he did well with the Avs (played beside an offensive D against good players, hit, blocked shots, wasn't noticeable, good +/- relative to team yes I know it's a hated stat I don't know his corsis etc.).
The habs have Subban, Markov, and Gorges. And lots of fairly effective non-physical offensive types. And Emelin who tends to get killed on his off side. The D would be acceptable with one more physical stay at home type. Doesn't look like they will get one this year, maybe in mid-season if the team surprises early.
