Just some observations from my side: they seem to watch the play instead of interfering way too often, no grittiness, not getting their nose dirty...we are lacking a real warrior on the blue line, someone like Derian Hatcher.
Someone else on here said it well - When we win and look good, we attribute that to our Defense. When we lose and look like @ss - we attribute that to bad goaltending.

I think until we hold accountability on others, the way we do on goalies (i.e. if Matt Carle has an absolutely awful game, bench him and throw him under the bus) - maybe it won't take our goalies so long to regain their stride.
