Gill, Kaberle and Campoli are crappy defensemen. Markov is capoutte. This team dearly needs solid veteran defensemen. In time, people will realize Habs need that more than any forwards they think Habs need.
In retrospect, I really think we can have a very competitive team starting next year as long as we improve our defense.
Really while it would be nice to bring in another winger who can create things for himself (ideally who can compliment Plekanec), our main concern should be replacing Gill and Campoli with real defenders, and maybe a "tough" 4th line C.
