Meh Emelin wasn't ready to start the season not to mention he was coming off of a huge injury. Without Bouillon and Murray you'd be forced to play two rookies to start the season. How often does that happen? They were possibly one injury away from having to ice three rookies. Nah Bergevin did the smart thing and provided depth. That has been the theme this entire season.
Tinordi and Beaulieu should have been eased into the lineup over the course of the season but we all know about Michel Therrien's love affairs with certain players and he's also the type of coach that prefers to ride veterans rather than develop youth.
