Agree with you 100%. Our soft D hurt the team last season. That and the passive approach to hockey under the Martin/Cunneyworth regime.

It sounds like Therrien is wanting the Habs to be more aggressive on D. And that is a great thing.

I have been critical of Bourque but I have a feeling that with him having more grittier linemates, he will step up his game this season.

Subban.................just sign the damned contract.
