the defense has been atrocious WITH pronger.
the defense has already shown that they are incompetent and even more atrocious without pronger. Mez has been extremely disappointing this season. his play, especially positionally and on the PK has just been terrible. Carle has been even worse than i initially thought he was. He constantly turns the puck over under pressure, especially down low and in the corners. Coburn has been good, but he is not the type that can completely anchor a pairing, let alone a defense in general. he has moments and games of greatness when hes playing physical and shutting players down, but we don't see that coburn more than a few times a year let alone on a consistent basis. Timonen is still a great defenseman but it's obvious that he's lost a step, and i think it's unfair to expect him to play like it's 3 years ago. Timonen will be fine, but we cannot rely on him to keep this defense from getting worse.
a move needs to be made or this team is really in trouble.
