I made this thread to ask you how you see the Habs defense and try to arrive at a consensus on which defenseman should Carbonneau use

For me it would be

Markov-Komi
Hammer-O'Byrne
Gorges-Streit

well... i'm under 5000 posts so I guess my opinion does not worth anything so....

I agree and hope to God HAMER is back and healthy for Saturday.
I have seen enough of Brisebois.

Gorges and Bouillon was an effective 3rd pairing before Hamrlik got sick, Streit is better on forward.

GTFO NOOB!!!!!!!

Just kiddin, I totally agree, but I would still want to get Boyle or Zidlicky on the second pairing... put Oburn on the third and trade away Streit, as much as I like him, he's too much of a defensive liability.

I agree. Considering the way Bouillon played the last time they made the playoffs I'd keep him on the bottom pairing.

That last pairing might hold the clue to what Gainey should concentrate on if he's looking to upgrade in the next 2 weeks.

Get streit off the defense and put as a forward permanently.

I agree. Gorges is an NHL defenceman. Flawed, yes, but just fine for the bottom pairing, especially at 23-24 years old and only 450k a year.

I like O'byrne's game...he wasn't great the last 2 games, but he brings a lot of size and he moves well also...once he is comfortable we should start seeing more of a physical impact.

Gorges and Bouillon are interchangeable in that spot. I think neither deserves to sit but neither is top 4.

Agreed.

Mark
ov-Komisarek
Hamrlik-O'Byrne
Bouillon-Gorges

and Streit premanently up front with time at the point on the power-play ...

Komisarek - Markov
Hamrlik - Streit
Gorges - Bouillon

I'd rather see O'Byrne in Hamilton for the stretch run. The reason has nothing to do with O'Byrne as a D-Man but more to do with Streit as a forward. I'd rather not put Streit on the 4th line and I can't see any reason to break up the Gorges, Bouillon pairing...

Begin - Smoke - Kosto/Dandy
Hamrlik - Streit

is better then...

Dandy - Smoke - Streit
Hamrlik - O'Byrne

In my opinion.

Brisebois, Georges and Bouillon present a problem for the immediate future of this club.

All of the above are being played far too often... they will be exposed in a playoff matchup and will really hurt the team. BG has to try and get someone like an Eric Weinrich type of dman to help in a playoff run.

I would tend to agree with this...Streit should go and play with Latendresse and Lapierre. Bouillon and Georges play very well together as a bottom pair. The only thing to fix IMO is the fourth line. I would sit smolinsky, call back Chipchura and play him with Begin and Kostopoulos. Idealy we could swing a deal before the deadline for a guy like Dwayne King of St-Louis to fill Begin's spot on the fourth line. This would allow double shifting a few guys on the fourth line once a while.

I would like to see Valentenko called up for a couple games after the deadline to see what kind of physical presence he can bring the Habs...a little audition if you please.

That's how I see it too... it's nice to see Briser back in Montreal but with Streit on the powerplay, Montreal does not need him as much anymore and on the defensive side, I rank him 8th, after Bouillon, "La bonne soupe".
IMO Streit should not play as a forward anymore.

O'byrne and Georges were awesome tonight, O'byrne will be briging the ruff stuff when Hammer comes back.

Yeah and if there is an injury he can drop back, it is a big + to have a guy like Streit in the line-up.

What I am more concerned about is Dandenault playing over Ryder on any night, the only thing Dandy brings right now is speed but he is not defensively sound and offers 0 offensive punch or grit.

I thought Gorges played better on the right side, paired with Bouillon. Streit belongs up front...

After this season...Komi, O'Bryne, Gorges...right side....Markov, Hammer and Valentenko left

Are you saying that is we find a concensus, then Carbonneau will actually use those defensmen?? Wow! I didn't know we had so much influence on the team!
