Emelin really was the lynchpin of the D. So frustrating to have this many NHL Dmen but barely any physical ones. As much as our prospect depth is on the blueline, we need a MAJOR restructuring of HOW our defence works. As I said in another thread, at this point we need to rethink our current Defence, disregarding vet status or experience. Focus on roles, and what roles we're missing.

Subban, Pateryn, Tinordi, Boullion all have grit.

Gorges is playing the worst hockey he's played in a long time, maybe ever. Demote him and let him find his game.

Subban and Markov are obviously mainstays, making one of Diaz and Weber redundant (obviously Diaz is better)

Tinordi-Subban (Let Tinordi stay back and keep it simple while Subban attacks)
Markov-Diaz (Softest minutes)
Gorges-Pateryn/Boullion (Shut down stay at home pair. Boullion would be my #7, I'm high on Pateryn as a #6 right now.)
