When will people start to admit that the defence is lackluster? I'm not comparing Salo and Conklin. I'm saying neither goalie is given a chance go play up to their standards, because our defenceman have yet to play one solid game this year as a group. One game Eric will be our best dman, and the next he will look like Tom Poti without the offence.

Salo has been poor but not terrible by any stretch. Team defence has inflating his bad stats, and the case will be the same for Conklin if things don't change. Conklin had a good game, I'm not going to take that away from him, but I would be worried about going into the playoffs right now with the way our team is currently playing.
