Between Subban, and Emelin, the habs can throw out 2 pairings on the ice that will force the opposition to keep their head up at all times. Add Tinordi into the mix at some point, and I like the presence that is being developed on the blueline.

Its a nice mix of size, mobility, and physicality. The only thing I'd like to see is more of that ruggedness in the depth spots that Kaberle, Weber, and Bouillon were/are occupying. Okay, maybe bouillon doesn't belong in that group, but the odds were always against him for the type of game he plays, and he's not getting younger.
