Markov-Subban
Emelin-Gorges
Tinordi/Beaulieu/Pateryn-Diaz

Murray is really just awful. I have no idea why he still has a roster space. I love the physical dimension he brings. That and getting in the way on the PK is absolutely all he brings though. Not only is he slow but he's bad with the puck and horrible IMO at reading the play.

I can't figure Boullion out. I'd blame it on age but I guess he was never really all that good. He's still relatively quick and shows poise with the puck at times but his brain just shuts off inside the opponents blue line.

They honestly both pretty much need to GTFO and pave the way for the future.

We're going nowhere with those guys as regulars.

The handling of the D has really been making me lose my faith in our coaching and management.
Bouillon and Murray will be OK as long as we don't have BOTH at the same time in the line up, and keep their play under 15 minutes a game. Thjey will be gone in 3-4 months from now. Let the youngsters develop, win and play Playoffs hockey at AHL level,
