Something like this could work out pretty good, or switch Bouillon and Kaberle.
Markov - Subban
Bouillon - Gorges
Kaberle - Emelin
Who was his partner on the big bad bruins? Asking because most of their defenseman are tough and guess what, they only spot used him and managed his minutes a lot.
He struggled in Carolina, not sure who his partner was there.
He was bad defensively in Montreal, and again his partners are blamed.
Its not that Kaberle is soft that makes him poor defensively, it was poor decisions in the defensive zone and piss poor body position. He always found himself with his opponent getting the position closer to the net than he was.
