So, to correct, very slightly, in about 4 games:

Subban: 26-28 min (1st PK/2nd PP/Hard ES min)
Markov: 24-26 min (2nd PK/1st PP/Medium ES min)
Gorges: 22-23 min (1st PK/No PP/Hard ES min)
Emelin: 20-22 min (Reserve PK/2nd PP/Medium ES min)
Diaz: 15-18 min (reserve PK/1st PP/Soft ES min)
Boullion: 15-18 min (2nd PK/No PP/Soft ES min)
Weber: #7 D
Kaberle: trade
Disagree with taking Emelin off regular PK, he's leading the team in PK TOI this season and he and Markov have been excellent together. Only 2 PPGA combined in 34:26 SHTOI vs Boullion and Gorges' 5 PPGA combined in 34:49 SHTOI. Once Subban gets matched with Gorges, I think Gorges' effectiveness will be back to last season giving the Habs an elite PK again.
