Defense - Who sits?

I have it as:

Markov/Emelin
Gorges/Subban
Kaberle/Diaz
Bouillon
Weber

But Therrien seems to be a huge Bouillon fan, so I can see one of Kaberle (less likely) or Weber moved for a prospect/pick.

I like your roster, but flip Bouillon with Kaberle. Kaberle is too soft and is completely redundant with Markov/Subban/Diaz and to a lesser extent Emelin's puck moving.

Had the exact same line-up defensively, except swap Bouillon for Kaberle.

My reasoning is pretty much strictly for the PP, and although he's not the same player anymore, he's clearly a better puck mover than Cube.

PP units:

Markov/Subban
Kaberle/Diaz

Ah cmon Bouillon is not doing bad. I don't understand the hate for him. Swap Bouillon with Kaberle and everything is better.

Better off to take turns double shifting Markov and Subban. Subban could play 35 minutes a game if he wanted to, dude is insane.

Easy answer is that if they can trade kaberle, they do that. Therrien has too much of a mancrush on Cube to sit him. So the most probable thing is weber gone for a pick.

Kaberle is way better than Bouillon on power play and 5-on-5

It's gotta be Kaberle. Therrien loves Boo way too much.

Kaberla was a healthy scratch for Weber. So it's Weber or Subban? Of course Subban has the upper hand, but I could see Theirren throwing Kaberla in there to play mainly pp minutes (which hes looked horrible at so far) to set up PK.

PP Unit:

Markov - Diaz
Subban - Kaberla

but again i'd rather sit Kaberla as we already have Markov the beast and Rafael the Swiss Fencer to go along with PK.

Markov - Diaz
Subban - Emelin?

Powerplay, sure but Bouillon has been better 5-on-5.

He can't shoot it. And he can barely keep it in the zone.

Weber 7th
Kaberle supplied with free donuts in the pressbox until we can buy him out.

Agreed, however I don't see a market for Kaberle at the moment. I know some teams are desperate for D, but not too sure they are desperate for overpaid, soft, slow D.

Won't surprise me at all if we deal Weber and Eller. They just seem to be the odd men out.

Bouillon is better 5 on 5 and despite his size, he brings that physical element on the back end. Whcih is something Kaberle OBVIOUSLY doesn't bring.

Who cares about the PP.....if it was for me, I'd have 4 forwards on PP#2 with Subban. Diaz and Markov on the first PP.

Well without Bouillon I think we would've lost the game vs the devils, he broke up a 2 vs 1 brilliantly. He did some good checks, I really don't see a reason why to keep him out of the lineup, Weber is way too soft he needs to go.
