But then you look at the habs D and I try to wonder where we can insert him.

Our top 6 is markov, souray, rivet, dandy, bouillon, komisarek.

I really dont want to lose any of these guys.

Markov should be untouchable.

Dandeneault and Bouillon always step up when the chips are down.

Komisarek is a young guy who is rugged and no fun to battle along the boards against.

Souray and Rivet make up a big part of the heart and soul of our D. When they talk, the team listens.

So unless there is a trade brewing, I dont see any of your D changing.
See that`s the problem with Rivet and Sourey being the heart and soul of our D. They`re the model for what we are and that`s why we always struggle in our zone. I would rather we try getting Gauthier for left D to replace Sourey because at least he brings something, grit. And then try aquiring Dan Boyle a right defenseman with a lot of offensive skills replacing Rivet considering Tampa needs a goalie and Aebischer is still highly rated. Make them a great offer for Boyle and at the same time they would have the cap space to re-sign Richards.

Also they should give Bouillon more ice-time on the power play. He got skills and impressed me a lot in that department in the playoffs.
