What do you mean?

 

Look at this great lateral movement on the second goal. He abandoned that side of the ice with magnificent agility.

Or on the first goal where he puts up a great fight in front of the net, but it's ok Jeremy Morin is one of the strongest powerforwards in the league I wouldn't expect our number 1 guy to be able to clear a puck, or control his stick.

 

Or what about having the 2nd most minor penalties for defensemen in the entire league? It's ok, our number 1 guy doesn't need to be on the ice, he just wants to let other guys develop their penalty kill skills.

 

 

We need a #1, Kronwall is not the answer.

Have any ideas where this magical # 1 D man is? ...and if you say Yandle I will puke in my mouth.

It's a good question, I should probably rephrase my comment to say and top pairing defensive guy. Ericsson might be on his way, but we could really use that Orpik, Mcdonagh, Seabrook, Seidenberg, Methot etc. type guy to cover down on Kronwall inefficiencies, they will always be there, it's who he is.

 

Which is one of the reason I wanted Bouwmeester, he could have really bailed out Kronwall's mistakes. Ericsson is good in his own right, I just don't think he's at a level in which he can make up for Kronwall. Hopefully he can develop some chemistry, but man do they make some crucial mistakes for a number 1 pairing.

 

But you're right a Doughty, Pieterangelo, Keith, Suter, Weber don't grow on trees, which is why I really wished Holland would have been more aggressive going after Subban for example.

You're insane. Sorry but no one wants Ian White.. No team trades bad players, they only trade players if they are looking to acquire or rebuild. I don't mind him here, he is not as worse then Kindl, Quincey and Colo. Heck I would get back Huskins at this point!

Bouwmeester? Seriously? That guy makes tons of mistakes on defense.

Subban, as the future of the Canadiens' defense, would not have been put on the market unless he had outright refused to sign with the Canadiens. I'm not sure why you believed that he was an option.

I am really happy we didn't get Bouwmeester. Here we are complaining about how our defensemen pinch in often and cant get back on defense. Bouwmeester is a master at that.

 

Subban was never on the market and Kenny doesn't offer RFA contracts.

If Kenny can get a second from a very desperate team for him, this would be a huge steal.

cleary yes, and franzen sure, just find someone who can score 25-30 goals around the same cap hit to replace him and we will be good...

You don't scratch one of the 50 best defenseman in the league.

 

Ian White is a great player, just is battling some demons right now. He'll be huge down the stretch.

I was semi sarcrastic, but really Ian White has been a very good point producing defenseman. And he's only 28. It wasn't just a one year thing with Lidstrom, the previous year he played with Calgary and Toronto and put up 38 points and played 22 minutes a night, 28th among defenseman in points and 42nd in ice time.

 

He's struggled this year, but it's not like he's never been productive.

I do not consider him top 50, maybe top 100
