This is never going to happen on a regular basis. JM has said repeatedly he likes to keep pairs together, for two seasons now, even when REALLY struggling those pairs have been Pleky - Cammy and Gio - Gomez .. only on a few rare ocassions when the team was really struggling did JM break that.

Really? And Cammy with Gionta? Or should Cole be with Cammy and Gionta with Max? And AK46, does he go with Cammy, or Gionta, or Cole?

JM is going to be experimenting for a while I think, which is what having several good options does to you. He's still working on the basis of pairs + another guy, which is not a bad way to do things.

1,5 Million a year to sit on a bench, he better bend over & take it!

You are honestly content with this defense?

Subban-Gill
Campoli-Gorges
Diaz-Spacek

Honestly?

I don't agree. We lost, what, Hamrlik and Wiz who weren't that much of a physical presence to add Campoli (who is actually a gritty player who can hit), Yemelin (who, in my opinion, will play on the opening night) and Woywitka who could play 10-20 games this season.

What matters is that we've got Cole and Pac (two 6'2'' guys in the Top 6 who will hit).

Get you Math, I normally agree, but I really think Max & Cole are match made. Get your 2 BIG gius up there, right. I'll argue & break it down at a a later date.

It's nicely above average for the conference. They have a first pair who can outscore the best opponents (Subban and whoever), a capable second pair which can take some tough minutes (built around Gorges) and a good third pair. The majority of teams don't have that luxury -- a lot lack a #1 D-man altogether. Campoli gives the unit a lot of depth.

Spacek is a big factor. People think he sucks, when he's actually quite an effective defender. "He looks terrible", that may be, but he's also good at limiting chances against despite fairly tough opposition, and ultimately that's the name of the game.

Don't compare it to what it looks like with Markov in (likely the best D in the conference) -- compare it to what other teams have.

@Math, you pretty much have to take Markov out of all equations at this point. We have to think that he's not here at all.
