Exactly.

We have 2 defenseman capable of making Kaberle look better on the ice. Gorges and Subban. Gorges is one of the best in his zone in the league and Subban isnt far behind, plus he has the ability to punish people open ice, on the boards and in front of the net.

If anything, this is on Bergevin and Therrien for bringing on a guy like Bouillon. Regardless of whether it's Kaberle, Diaz or Weber that gets paired with him or with each other on that pairing we are going to have a hard time clearing the net.

Markov, Kaberle and Emelin all need to play the left side to be effective. Bergevin should have gone out and got a big RD to cover for Kaberle. Via trade or UFA, doesn't matter.
