"nobody makes it to the WCF with crap D". Not true. We face the avs- even crappier D, and Detroit's D is good but quickly aging. Their forwards still had plenty of breaks against our D as well, but we killed them with powerplays and a hot offense. Guess what happens when we face a stacked D? Swept...

Nabby bails out our D way more than people give him credit for. Best wishes to Greiss trying to fill those shoes next season.
Put a great defense in front of him and he won't need to bail anyone out. That's the entire rationale behind ditching Nabokov, that money goes toward the defense
