They do have a defense coach, don't they ? Doug Jarvis. I don't know much about his coaching style, I've read that he stresses positioning, and like Carbo, they preach quick puck movement, just as an organizational trait.
I'm not sure how he can be faulterd for O'bryne's difficulties, but not praised for Gorges improvement, can't have one without the other right ? Did his arrival also not coincide with Komo's improvement ?
I do think that they need an organizational defense coach, sort of quality control position that teaches standards and styles that the team wants to practice.
I have no idea who is best suited, the way a guy talks in the media, or the way he played doesn't mean much, my money would be on someone we know, someone that the staff in place and org. has a comfort level with. You need a name if he's a roving instructor,monitoring guys in God knows what league, if you want the guy to command the right level of respect.
