Very well put. Have a look at the Oilers if you want an example of a team that has drafted very talented but similar player types. Now they are scambling to find players that can defend.

How did you come to that conclusion?

And how many teams have $10M in cap space available for 1 player and are willing to give up the 1st round draft choices?

Long overdue. Would have happened sooner if he wasn't overshadowed by such a star-studded team.
- Comment on Habs sign Weise to two-year contract (2014-06-17 15:02:32)
Agreed. I love watching Weezer play.

Beaulieu is definitely the better puck handler but they may need Tinordi as well for his physical presence to fill the void left by Murray.

I think Beaulieu has the edge at the moment based on his play in the playoffs. A very strong training camp by Pateryn or Tinordi could shake that up though.

Sure, could be that they weren't ready but I think at least 1 should have been given regular ice time with the big team, most likely Beaulieu. Plenty of mistakes would have been made but I don't think he would have been any worse than Murray.

I think he'll get top bucks on his offensive ability alone.

I think part of the reason that MB has to sign Markov is that the Habs didn't ease more rookies into the defensive corps last year. Is Therrien really going to start more than one rookie on D at one time? I doubt it. No matter how well they play during training camp MB/MT will favour experience on the blue line.
