It seems like we get burned rather often back door with both defenseman on one side of the ice or behind the net. How can something like this occur within one year and not a considerable amount of roster change in the offseason?
We're missing Redden. And I'm serious about that. There are three guys on the team who have a bunch of experience killing penalties, which means there's often going to be someone learning the gig at the NHL level on the ice fairly often. You would hope that Sauer would develop into a good PKer, but he's still a rookie. MDZ could as well, but he's got that youth thing too. I fully expect the kill to get better over the course of the season.
