Same place they put Wiskey on the third pairing dmen.
Now with Emelin down the Habs will have to put Wiskey to play as a #4 D instead of a more experienced guy.

Going into a playoff run you need a solid 9 dman to insulate against injuries. The problem is we had three wonky Dmen at the trade deadline (Weber, Diaz and Kaberle), Bergevin made a move to get one extra D .... I think he should have been a little more aggressive and gotten better D depth.

I understand not giving away draft picks... BUT FOR ****** SAKES we have a shot at the Stanley Cup this year! The EAST is wide open and if you get to the SC Finals anything can happen. I don't think giving away one of our 2nd round picks (we have three this draft year) would jeopordize the habs future... but would have given us a better shot at the CUP!

I WANT A F**KING CUP ALREADY! It's been 20 years.

LOL. Just saying... I want to dance with the silver cup.
