How green will be our D in Calgary - Or the Matroshka Doll analogy



Check it out.

Our least experienced D in the NHL is Emelin who has played only 1 game.

Diaz has more experience; he has played twice as many game!

But that's nothing compare to Weber who has played 17 time more games than Emelin and Diaz put together (51 game vs 3).

Not that impressive though, when you realize that Subban has played 50% more games then Weber, Diaz and Emelin put together (81 game vs 54).

Then that must make Gorges an elder stateman since he has played 2.7 times more game than Subban, Weber, Diaz and Emelin put together (366 vs 135).

But wait! Gill has played almost twice as many game as all of the others put together! (966 vs 501).

I kinda wish we had Chelios on the team just to add one more shell to the Matroshka.

Bottom line, our D will be very green in Calgary.

Am I worried? Nah. I am a fan; I don't have to be rational, I just have to rationalize. Price will bail these rookies out and Subban is a stud.

Let's see if Barney Stinson is right; 'New is always better!'

I was thinking about how Gill had played more games than the rest of the d-corps combined, but you took it to another level.

That's the HF Board spirit! Well... except for the 'couple of games' part. And the implication that 'Sh*ting all over the GM' is conditional to the outcome of the first proposition. It's not. It'll happen either way.

Which is why I dumped Subban from my pool in favor or Emelin! Sitcom wisdom never fails!

--

If I may be serious a moment, I am very pleased with the performances of Emelin and Diaz during the last games in relation to that they cost the team to obtain. Like any fans I cringe when I feel management is wasting assets but I gotta tip my hat when they manage to fill the roster with players capable of helping us win at no cost whatsoever to our future.

Awesome.

Not too worried about the D tomorrow. The youngsters are getting better with each period. Especially Emelin. You could tell his improvement in positioning between the 1st and 3rd Periods.

I was trying to figure out what this thread meant before entering, I was way off.

At first glance I thought it might be about us acquiring Mike Green somehow :

At least he did well on the PK vs. Winnipeg. I'll hope that Subban will score a PP point in the next five games or so.
