The defense has and still is the number 1 issue.
Let's be honest with ourselves. How many of our defensemen would crack the Habs lineup? Probably 2.
Are you serious? The same Habs who have Emelin, Beaulieu, and Gilbert?
We could use another D but I think a Top 6 forward is a must get.
Do you watch the Habs often?
I heard on the radio after the game last night that the Habs dumped the puck 3 times in the first 2 periods. So do you think it's thanks to their forwards or their defensemen?
I have seen the Habs many times. I would easily take Ceci over any d-man they have not named Markov or Subban, and I would play Cowen over Emelin and Gilbert in a heartbeat. They are basically a one-pairing team like the Sens.
So they don't dump the puck? Why is that an argument in their favour? That's just a different style, doesn't mean it's a better stly.
