It was a tough game to watch. You just didnt see the habs play that poorly very often last year.

I am concerned not only with the lack of experience on the blueline, but also with the team defense in general... that includes the forwards who are coming back too late and/or turning the puck over in their own zone.

Subban is not getting a whole lot of flack, but lets face it, he can and NEEDS to play much better and smarter in order for the team to get through this stretch of games with a depleted defense.

On the bright side, for all of gomez's faults, I'm appreciating the fact that he's actually driving to the net, looking for loose pucks rather than parking himself around the perimeter. If nothing else, he'll pot a few more goals and draw extra attention from the opposition... clearing some space for his linemates.
