Because our goaltending has dropped by 10 pts in SVPCT...been a big factor.

And team defense, and the style of defensive hockey we play is certainly an issue. It isn't helped that we have some guys looking like young D back there. The Coburn-Carle pairing makes me nervous every time they're out there. For every really good play they make, they also do something silly.

What I wouldn't give for a Weinrich like player on this team...if we had the cap room (which we won't), this team could really use a veteran steady D for the top 4.
