Hi, PK: I want to point out that PK Subban is the best defenseman in the league right now. If he keeps up his play, there's no doubt another Norris Trophy for this year. Markov: At 34 years old, Markov is probably one of the most underrated defenseman in the league. This is the guy that made Souray, Streit, Komisarek like a top pairing dman and got them rich. Souray's career kinda went downhill after leaving MTL, so did Komisarek. Streit on the other hand cannot play defense, almost 2/3 of his points came from powerplay. I look at the upcoming UFA defense group and I don't see anyone with Markov's talent. Someone like Dan Boyle comes close but he's 5'10" 180lbs, 38 years old with a concussion. I think we need to resign Markov. Gorges: I hate how he skates, I don't like the way he moves, he's slow for his size however what Gorges does very well is play it safe. Like Markov, I think Gorges is very underrated. He knows the game and you rarely see Gorges make a mistake. I think at $3.9 mil, its a bargain at these days. He's like Ryan Mcdonagh when we stole him away from San Jose, not to mention we also stole Max Pacioretty with their pick. Emelin: Like Subban, Markov, and Gorges, I think Emelin cannot be replaced on this team. He's got size 6'2" 225lbs and throw open ice hits like Subban, and is a shutdown defenseman like Gorges. We need to give him a long term contract, he's awesome with Markov. I love these combo Subban-Gorges, Markov-Emelin. On the flip side Diaz: I think he's weak in the defensive zone. He can move the puck but I don't think he's a top 4 player. Players like Diaz are a dime a dozen on the free agent market. I see players who are bigger and better than Diaz. I think we should move him or let him walk in the summer to make room for Tinordi and Beaulieu. Boullion: Resigning Bou was a patch up for the time being, he won't be back at 39 years old. Drewiske: Easily expandable. Murray: Not the same player he once was. Tinordi: He's learning how fast the game is. Tinordi needs to be faster and more physical. Beaulieu: He's trying to keep up to the speed of the NHL. He tries to do things but this isn't junior or AHL. ---------------------------- Personally I like our group, however, we are missing that veteran puck moving defenseman. Someone like a 32 year old Roman Hamrlik who could play with Tinordi/Beaulieu. I think Boullion is the wrong player to play with Tinordi/Beaulieu.
