Top 4 D to the Habs

This right now is an issue for the Habs. Our only legitimate top 4 defenseman are Subban and Markov. We need another dman, as right now our defense is bad.

Holy **** I'm tired of reading this. As it is, we have 1 of Tinordi/Beaulieu (our future core) in the press box every game, that's with Alex Emelin AND Doug Murray currently injured. We really don't need a D, what we need is 1) get bigger on the wings and 2) find a way for Galchenyuk to play centermen where he belongs.

We could use a top-4 D upgrade.... Not sure we need another guy to just sit around.

It's funny our defense is so bad... And Carey Price is ****... Yet we've allowed the 4th lowest goals against per game in the league, what is this gypsy magic?

Habs don't need to make moves for the sake of making moves, Emelin and Murray will return and until that time let Tinordi and Beaulieu get some ice time. We seem to be doing just fine so far

Yeah, this.

Adding a top-4 D would be a "nice to have", as the Habs do currently only possess 3 of the ideal 4. But the way Diaz has played the last couple games (can he keep it up?), and Emelin eventually coming back, there are internal options on hand. There are probably many teams further from the "ideal" than the Habs are.

But the thing is, this is just the worst possible time to try to address that "nice to have" via a trade. The cost would hurt the Habs too much in other areas. They can't get a top-4 D by giving up the players they'd most like to move, and the other players (incl. Plekanec and Gorges) are too important to move just to address a "nice to have".

It's a non-starter IMHO. If the D can still use an upgrade to the "ideal", the only time to look is off-season UFA market. The Habs are still too weak to make "hockey trades".

If the team is winning I think the vast majority of Habs fans are willing to wait for Emelin to come back and see how Murray slots in.

If after that, Bouillon still has a spot on this roster than we need to trade for another defenseman, and keep going until he's in the PB.

Sure I would like Schenn but the flyers would have to take back some dead weight.
