The team seems to play fine on D when needed, when healthy. But timely scoring punch is more what is lacking now.
I agree. We need a player like Hartnell more than we need another D. For all we know, PG might be scouting Bieksa for next summer's free agent market. I can't see the Canucks resigning him. I also can't see us doing too much with the defense until next summer.
