You'd rather dress Davis Drewiske than Josh Gorges as part of a plan to have success in the playoffs? Good god. Do you even remember 2010 when Gorges was an absolute warrior in the playoffs? You pretty much just ruined your credibility with that statement.

Back to the topic of the thread, a lot of the Habs defenceman have clear injury histories, so there's really no rush to make a move until Emelin is back (which might be around game 25-30). More AHL time won't hurt Tinordi even though he may be ready. He was good in the A last year, but still inconsistent at times and certainly not dominant.

If it ever gets to the point where everyone is healthy and the kids are showing that they are truly ready on the farm sometime in late November-Early December, then you can start the trade watch. It may even be Murray himself who is dealt for all we know.
