The worst part is we know they can play better, but they just aren't. They better figure this **** out.
The defense problem is bigger than the personnel. When the team plays the system (see Friday night against Ottawa) they are a different team. It's kind of a chicken or egg scenario for me. Are the defensive gaffs of late just their own craptastic play or does it start with the utter lack of support from the forwards causing their poor decisions because they have no outs (although I would think an NHL defensman would have a clue how to play a two on one)?
