This team desperately needs some snarl on the back-end.
I agree that the defense needs more toughness. I don't think Meszaros has been bad or that Coburn is a wuss - but they do need more. Carle, Timonen, Bourdon and Gustafson as the other 4 don't bring any toughness at all (Bourdon is a big kid but it doesn't look like he has the skating to play a real physical game at this level)

Not sure that just adding a guy like Gleason would fix it. Everybody was convinced that the Sabres adding Regher would be the difference...

I don't know what the solution is but I know there is a problem
