They are solid defensively when correctly used, with the appropriate amount of icetime, we all know that. Even if recently, we are not enjoying a lot of good results, we still have a good record when it comes to goals allowed and defensive performances.

The problem is that they're absolutely unable to help offensively, and this is even more obvious now that Subban is looking for confidence and struggling with his game.

We need an offensive and mobile player, able to log +22-23 mins each night...Kaberle, Pitkanen, i dont care who, but we have to clearly identify the need we have.

And when Martin is gonna put Weber instead of Picard in the lineup ?
I wanna see Spacek playing on the left side...for once, please ?
Et voila!! We need a top puckmoving defenseman able to handle the PP, a guy who can shot as well.. Everytime one of our D shot the puck ist rather blocked or wide beside of the net.. we have 0 contribution from behind.. In fact the best to take shots from the point is Weber and Im pretty sure he will be reinserted in the line-up for the next game.. hopefully we never see Picard again, unless Martin has enough of Gill or Spacek...
