Don't misunderstand the point. I am talking about skill sets and development. Can we win it all this year? Sure ... if we fix the obvious defensive weakness
and the team re-discovers how to play with a purpose
, we can win this year.
This team's inconsistency in playing a full hard 60 minutes has plagued them before, but for whatever reason and maybe it's Nabokov moving on, this year's team looks the most disjointed. It's not just a weaker defense that troubles me, it's the overall lack of intensity at times... look no further than last night late in the game against the Avs.
