Well, I dunno if it's that bad. The recent addition of Cullimore helps a lot, but they also brought in Jim Vandermeer who looked really, really good, too. There's also Steve Poapst who has never been a problem there. Steve McCarthy and Stephan Robidas could be better, and Anton Babchuck is very young, but then there's Thibault in net who can be an incredible goaltender at times. This team defense is not the best in the west, but it's ahead of several othre western teams too. With a good forward corps, I'd have the Hawks in the playoffs.

Also, it's worth remembering that this is a Sutter team. Defense I do not think will be the worst problem for the Hawks. Scoring goals will be.
