This has been a great season for health on the blue line, but it is usually a good idea to prepare for more injuries. Over the course of a normal season, the #9 dman often gets plenty of games.
True, we need 9 dmens. That's why we are in good shape at this position. I predict subban, diaz and emelin will sign an extension before they reach free agency in 2014. Even with the youngsters. And I wouldn't be surprised if Markov is still aroud.

It'd be :
Subban
Diaz
Gorges
Emelin
Markov
Tinordi
Beaulieu
For a top 7, it looks good (if beaulieu progression go on as it is)

And there's many teams who prefer having 8 defensemen and 13 forwards nowadays. It's harder to replace a 6th dman than a 4th liner
