    Cube just isn't good enough to be a regular dman anymore. Good #7.

    Went with bouillon because they both play a shutdown role leaving the lineup more balance, BUT I wouldn't mind Diaz.

    Gorges-Subban
    Markov-Emelin
    Tinordi-Diaz

    would be the best balance we can get.

    I put Diaz cause Bouillon even if not good, is at leat usually reliable for a good pass, Diaz not so much but he s better offensively though

    Boullion, easy.

    But this is reality and Therrien is coach, so Tinordi will sit.

    This.

    Bouillon does nothing well, but he's Therrien's boyfriend. It's not that Bouillon is a liability; he's just mediocre.

    Therrien loves Bouillon too much. I'd keep Tinner, but I doubt Therrien would.

    I didn't even have to look at the choices. With that switch, I'd leave Murray out and pray this D core stays healthy.

    With everyone healthy I would love to see

    Gorges-Subban
    Markov-Emelin
    Murray-Tinordi

    Teams would be afraid to cross our blue line.

    Pretty sure MT will fight for him like he did all pre-season.

    Bouillon was brought back to be the 7th guy.

    Therrien will play Bouillon on Desharnais' wing if he has to in order to make sure he gets on the ice and gets his PP time

    How Diaz and Tinordi are getting votes on this is way beyond any modicum of understanding. You sit the #7, at best, defenseman - Francis Bouillon. It's rough to watch him out there on the PP. He's the epitome of mediocre.

    Now if you phrased the poll: who WILL sit, then it definitely won't be Frankie, one of Michel's boys.

    I've always liked Bouillon. Felt he was a decent blueliner and played with heart. But he's really a number 7 guy now. He just doesn't look good and I'd want him to sit.

    As others have said though, he's MT's boyfriend.

    He was bad in pre-season but in those two games he's been better than Bouillon defensively while being 10X better offensively.

    Yes, I easily prefer Bouillon to Diaz in the top 6, assuming that a healthy Emelin can play better than both. As for PP, let Emelin replace Diaz. I just find him not very effective overall, and I don't see enough offensive pizazz to justify him in a healthy top 6. Bouillon is a limited player, but he does a lot of little things well. Better player overall, IMO, for this team, at this time.

    Voted Diaz. He's just so bad, and soft... Wrong side though, so he'd probably take Bouillon's spot, who is just as equally as bad, but speaks french and has a relationship with MT.

    Tinordi would be the one sitting.
