, this worries me a lot:
Watching the Flyers, you might think they should be looking for help on the blue line. Holmgren says it’s not the defense but rather the forwards' failure to play defense that has him worried.
I might agree with that, but does he not also see that our defense doesn't do itself any favors? The corps overall is still weak... this is a bit disconcerting that he seems to think a top 4 18 year old defenseman (as good as he is and will be) still doesn't ring alarm bells.
I've been thoroughly impressed with Sbisa and think he's definitely top 4 the way he's been playing but I'm also not blind enough to believe that we have to
him to be a top 4 d-man and call ourselves contenders.
