However, if Bergevin maintains his refusal to give Subban his due, and if Weber gets sent down to Hamilton, Tinordi could be the 7th dman. The Habs are also likely to lose some dmen to injury in the first few games, it happens all the time.

Frederic St-Denis also in the cards. I don't see the big deal, but a lot of people like him.
More like:

1) Markov

2) Subban
3) Gorges

4) Kaberle

5) Diaz
6) Emelin

7) Bouillon
8) St-Denis
9) Tinordi
10) Weber

Contracts dictate 7-8-9-10 more than actual play/value. I understand why Bergevin is keeping 10 NHL-capable Ds in a shortened season, but expect Bouillon-Weber to go be out next year as St-Denis and Tinordi will dominate them, while Beaulieu enters the conversation.

Value does not equal play, PK Subban is not better than a healthy Markov(including the leadership effects) over the length of a season just yet.
