The Montreal Canadiens organization doesn’t have to look far for some young upcoming defense men for the 2011-2012 NHL season.
A list of some defense men:
Yannick Weber – Probably has the best chance to secure a spot as a regular in the lineup.
Alexandre Picard – Good Size played pretty solid in the 43 games he played in.
Mathieu Carle – Had a decent year considering a setback with some injury problems.
Raphael Diaz – Solid two-way game in Switzerland, wait to see what he can do in Canada.
Kyle Klubertanz – A very solid year in Hamilton won’t be surprised if he plays next year.
Alexei Yemelin – Has matured in the KHL looks promising but a two-way contract can see him with both teams.
Brendon Nash – Good size young potential you never know.
Defense that should be signed:
Andrei Markov – 2 year deal worth 4.75m a year.
Josh Gorges – long-term contract worth 3.5-4m a year.
Yannick Weber – Can fit the bill as six defense or even bottom six on forward 1-3 year deal worth 1m or less.
Hamilton Bulldogs will play Game 5 tonight at Copps Coliseum at 7:30pm et.
