If Emelin is indeed not ready to start the year, then I doubt we will just take a chance on riding Tinordi/Beaulieu/Bouillon as 5-6-7 Dman.
But obviously I can be wrong.
There's no problem with Tinordi starting the season as the 7th dmen or 8th dmen down in Hamilton.
Recent history teaches us that Habs dmen drop like flies as the season goes on. Let Tinordi (and Beaulieu, Ellis, and Pateryn) dominate in Hamilton for 20-25 minutes a game, which is excellent for their development at this stage. When we get to the point that there are 3 or 4 simultaneous injuries on the Habs top-6 blueliners, which will happen maybe 20 games into the season, we can start calling them up, as Bergevin did this year.
