This makes a lot of sense, except I suspect Spacek gets in the bottom pair over Weber, as a reward for showing up in such shape.

The only problem is that Subban can handle substantially more minutes than Gill should be given. If there's lots of PP time that evens out, but if there are a lot of PKs (and there often, often are) then Gill's going to get worn down or Subban's going to ride the bench. If these were the pairings, I suspect Subban would get extra shifts at Emelin's expense. Or some other adjustment.

the guy came here for blood, not for money. He will be a fan favorite soon enough... its a dream come true to see him wear the jersey ... got fluid skating and great first pass ... gritty ... sounds like perfection to me, for a #4.

If anything was close to being 0% likely, it would be this.

I haveba feeling that Spacek play with Markov.

So i would say
Yemelin Suban
Markov Spacek
Gill georges

We finally have a chance to put spacek back on LD where he belongs. I'd take it.

He may be ahead of Yemelin but don't forget that Yemelin is playing his 1st NA game. I'd rather invest time in him with growing pains than in Woywitka who'll likely not be around next year.

Yemelin looks comfortable on both sides and so does Gorges, so I think that's a good possibility...

Subban RH
Markov LH
Gill LH
Gorges LH or RH
Yemelin LH or RH
Weber RH
Spacek LH
Woywitka LH

4 LH
2 RH
plus two that can comfortably play both...

Ok ,so the habs will play Boston soon.
Yemilin will play the Bruins, he will of course hand out a few good hits. and what we all know for sure is the Bruins will go NUTS right away and challenge him to 10 fights. The Bruins MUST NOT let Yemilin get away with NAY hits legal or not. We know the Bruins game plan is to intimidate and NEVER BE intimidated.

you remember when Subban hit Marchand with that great open ice LEGAL hit, the entire Bruins team just went NUTS and went after Subban jumping off the bench charging right for Subban.

Same thing will happen, just watch.

If Yemelin, Weber & Woywitka all play this year this team is in trouble.

Would Yemelin accept a short conditioning assignment in the AHL or is he "No NHL, i'm out of here" 100%? By conditioning assignment, I mean to adjust to NA game and no more than 5-10 games, prob 5.

Why would he need a conditionning assignment, he just played 3 or 4 exhibition games. Send Woywitka and Diaz down.

Right and wrong:
If they all play this year; we won't necessarily be in trouble.
If they all play at the SAME time, we're probably in trouble

Not in same sense. For NA game conditioning.

I don't consider him one of our better d-men. I think he's got a lot of good tools, but I think there will be a little transition period. No different than PK, learning the right decisions.

From different media in Quebec, Diaz would be better than Yemelin right now. Wonder how the hell it could happen. We need some grit and physical presence, Diaz is good, good shot, good ice-vision, but damn, we don't need another Weber, let's give some ice time to Yemelin.

Another Weber would seem to indicate a border-line 11th NHL D-man.

Diaz has easy 3rd-4th d-man written on him. I see him as a less robust Kaberle.

Did you watch preseason? He easily got the puck up ice with tape to tape passes, looked very smooth on the point on the PP. Made good decisions in defensive coverage and had a number of good hits and didn't make any glaring mistakes. Transition period or not, who else other than Gorges and PK outplayed him?

I think you guys are overhyping Yemelin right now.

He sounds like a great offsensive D, but the guy is still new in the system and he will need time to learn how to be responsible defensively under the JM system.

I'm really worried that our younger defensemen will be making those n00b mistakes.

If we start the season with Diaz, Yemelin, and Woywitka...Carey Price is gonna have one long ass season...

Even campoli the guy can SKATE, he can do a good first pass, but defensively the guy looks a bit lost...

We need to work on developing those youngsters before we put them all at the same time.

I'd rather put Spacek than any of those guys right now...

The thing is, he's labelled and is a defensive D. Besides his last KHL year, he never got many points.

If Campoli wasn't above average defensively his +- on Ottawa would be up there with Phillips(who is pretty good defensively but played on a terrible team) Gonchar Karlsson etc

I don't think we have room for Diaz Woywitka and Yemelin all on the roster right now, with Weber Campoli Gorges Subban Gill Spacek that adds up to 9 d-men not counting Markov. I don't see them keeping 9 or 10 d-men...I see one getting sent down after Saturday's game and another once Markov is back(probably Diaz and Woywitka).
