Montreal definitely still needs to address size on the wings and a physical top 4 defenseman. Who leaves and stays will be a tough decision for MB.

There may have to be some decisions made on a guys like Markov and Gorges. Both have contracts that make it difficult to move. Both players i like but Markov really has become a 5th defenseman PP specialist.

Up front, still too small in the top 6 unless you drop Pleks down to play a more defensive role and move Galchenyuk back to center. I am not fond of the DD signing overall as it doesnt address a need especially a long term one. Personally i would of rather them try and address size at the wings and went with Pleks, Galchenyuk, and Eller down the middle.

Overall, its promising and i am glad MB didnt mortgage the future for this year as i still dont see the team as legit Cup contender. There is more tinkering that must be done but its nice seeing what they Gally's have become, how Subban has blossomed, Eller is thriving, and Emelin and Diaz look like legit top four defenseman.
