So if Bergevin was to wake the **** up and trade for a good 4th liner and a good bottom pairing D, the Habs would be in business.
Wow! It's so simple! What is Bergevin doing? We only need a couple of 4th liners and below average defensemen!
Back on topic, I'd say we need an upgrade in our top4 D. Subban/Markov is fine. Emelin is OK as #4 on a contending team. But we really need something better than Gorges to complete our top 4 if we are to contend. That being said, Gorges can be a great #5-6 on a contender.
Forwards: I have no problem with Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Plekanec and Patches in our top 6. Sitll have some doubts about Eller. He's in the top 9 of a contending team, for sure, but
top 6, as it would mean he's a 2nd line center on a contender. So yeah, probably another top6 forward.
Goals: If Price plays like he's doing this year, no problem.
All in all, we have some good pieces (Price, Subban, Patches, Plek, the Gallys, Eller) and
is maybe what this team needs more. Our core is relatively young and prospects might come in and patch some of our holes.
