Who has the better defensive brigade between the Canadiens and the Maple Leafs? According to Bob Hartley, the answer is clear and unequivocal. During his appearance on the RDS show "le 5 à 7", the always interesting and pertinent Bob Hartley stated the following:

"The Canadiens' defensive brigade lacks experience, but it is superior to that of the Leafs!" - Bob Hartley


The CH's defensive brigade is young and sorely lacks experience, but it is encouraging to note that it is ahead of that of the Leafs, a mature team and Stanley Cup contender.


Savard, Matheson, Guhle, Harris, Xhekaj, and Kovacevic have nothing to envy Rielly, Brodie, McCabe, Klingberg, Giordano, and Liljegren in terms of talent. Moreover, our young defenders have not yet reached their full potential. Whereas for the Torontonians, most are at their peak. "What you see is what you get!"

The young Montreal defense is a fine wine that will gain in maturity and quality but is not quite ready to drink. As for the Maple Leafs, it's better to decant it and hope it lasts in the mouth this spring, otherwise, it could leave a bitter and corked taste!
