I like the defensive prospects we have coming up Beaulieu, Tinordi and I feel like our blueline going forward will probably be in decent shape. Our forwards though? Do we have have anyone really to be excited about beyond Galchenyuk? LL might be okay but there's nobody there that can really carry the day.

I'm more worried about the future of our forwards than on defense.
The problem is the wings. The winger depth after Pacioretty is...not good.

If Galchenyuk develops the way we expect him to, I am more than comfortable with Eller-Galchenyuk and Plekanec down the middle. I would move Desharnais to wing in such a case. I think for the first time in a while, the habs centre position is not the problem of the team (only if Galchenyuk develops into what we expect). Long-term the defense is fine, but the wings don't looks so hot. The short-term problem of this team is the defense, if they would have a better defensive core, I think this year's team could easily squeeze into a playoff spot, but not with what we have.

Perhaps a Collberg, Gallagher, Kristo or Bozon surprise us?
