Last time we ahd a very good defense we ahd two defensive dmen in the top 4 (Lydman/Tallinder). Last eyar and this year we have had issues by not having 2 of those types in the top 4.
It has occurred to me that the unit looked better when Tallinder and Lydman were at their best instead of a poor-playing Leopold and Ehrhoff, yes.

But sorry, I won't claim that the unit is flawed because it is underperforming. Sekera and Myers are both beyond capable defensively, though Myers hasnt looked it of late and Sekera didn't tonight. But the unit should be good enough. Cut down on mistakes and get more disciplined mentally in terms of positioning and decision making.

But keep feinding for yet another body. That's healthy for you mentally....
