I agree with JGRB, the Emelin-Diaz pairing was quite good...and remember they were being used as a 2nd pairing and were doing quite well. They would be an excellent bottom pairing duo. The idea of Kaberle-Gorges is intriguing.

I would say what was surprised is that, given his size and the type of game he came from, that we wasn't intimidated by bigger forwards. He's not really afraid to take a hit which is important as a D man. IMO it's one of the reasons why Gorges is so effectve because he would literally take a bullet to clear the zone. Most turnovers on D come slight hesitation caused by trying to balance making a play and avoid getting hit.
