He can't control what should be easy rebounds and once he goes down, he's not getting back up. He barely gets from one side of the net to the other. How is that the D's fault?

The defense and forwards aren't really helping us prevent goals but neither is Anderson.

As Dater has mentioned a couple times in his blogs/articles, the defense has no faith in the goaltending and the goalies have no faith in the defense. When the defense is actually playing well, Anderson will allow a soft goal. When Anderson is playing well, the defense will give up an odd man rush.

I don't see how anyone can sit there and defend Anderson while blaming everyone else. The coaches, goalies, defense, and forwards should all share the blame for the Avs allowing the 3rd most goals in the league.
