Halpern was fine as a #4 center, I think if given the chance, Dumnt can do a good job with it too.

How does Gorges being #3 make our defense suck? Scuderi played #2 minutes for LA, a team that won the cup last year and got to the sme finals this year. Your problem is you live in a dream world where every #4 d-man in the NHL is a Kronwall or Girardi. There was a list posted a few weeks back of guys playing top 4 minutes...Boston had Ference, Chicago had Oduya, LA had Scuderi and Regehr, Pittsburgh had Niskanen yet Gorges is not good enough to be a #3-4 in the NHL?

Which game did Thornton not play in OT? If you say last night then you obviously wasn't watching. He didn't play in the 3RD OT, but played in the others and actually had a good scoring chance.
