The main problem with the defense last year wasnt necessarly the players but more a system-cohesion problem. Everybody even Markov at times struggled because of it. The forwards didnt no what to do without the puck and where to be which led to many dump on the glass and other panic moves. Also, the defense wasnt even involved in the transition game which is key in this new NHL. Because of all that, im not ready to say that Hammer is done. With Martin proning puck possession and a great transition game, Hammer should be just fine and back to his A game.
