What no more breakaways for Gorges because of darn Kaberle weighing him down?
Clearly.

That said, Subban is our 2nd best 5-on-5 defenseman. So one of Gorges or Subban should IMO go with Kaberle to kind of shelter him a little better. He's a real good offensive defenseman who's defensive game is easily exploited, so Therrien needs to find a way to spread out the depth a little. Gorges-Subban was one of the best shut down pairings in the league, and I'd hate to break it up... That said, as long as Kaberle is being paired with an inexperienced or weak defensive partner that pairing is going to be exposed and exposed really bad.
