I'd rather see him with Subban and Gorges with Markov.

You and me both. Emelin slides back to his left, paired up with a mobile puck-mover in Subban on the right. Markov drops to second-pairing minutes, playing with a responsible stay-at-home Gorges, who's also the most comfortable playing on the right side from his time with Gill. That leaves Kaberle platooning with Bouillon on the left side of Diaz.

Not just the mobility but the decision-making. The offensive-zone gambles are not well-timed most of the time now. He's taking unnecessary risks and gambling on his ability to keep the puck in, even though his foot speed is not what it was.

What I mean is the combination of the somewhat questionable decisions coupled with Emelin and Subban's lack of speed is causing those kinds of turnovers. It's starting to get a little silly that Markov is getting the most ice time, everyone knows I'm a bit of a Subban fanboy but I'd even rather see Gorges getting some of Markov's minutes. I love Markov and I'm happy with Emelin's play but the two of them together is nerve wracking.

Oh well though, enough of this stuff, it's evidently not going to change so we'll just have to deal with it.

Precisely so. Emelin gets back on his right side, Subban has the speed to cover the ice and Markov gets someone who can hang back when he pinches. It also keeps our best puck movers on separate pairings, thus giving us at least one defenseman on each pairing with excellent zone exits and outlet passes (Subban, Markov, Kaberle/Diaz)

Looks like Theo pulled his groin or tweeked his knee.

Seemed like he was in a lot of pain.



Is it me or does don cherry know every NHL player is going to be in the NHL 3 or 4 years before their drafted

He gets a lot of flack, constantly puts his foot in his mouth, but does a lot for hockey Canada.

Which is why he's alwasy pushing Canadian players.
