You are way off on a few points:

1. This team has many issues. It is not even close to having no weaknesses on paper. The defense is not top 10, and the additions we recently made are nothing more than adequate players who do not have the ability to shift the way this team plays defensively. Carle, Mez, and Coburn are not what many of us thought they were or what they were on the verge of becoming. They have been unable to step up to the next level.

Ignoring the goaltending issue also smacks of willfull ignorance. There is a CLEAR issue there right now, whether or not that will straighten itself out. What kind of team won't have ups and downs and inconsistent results when unscreened wrist shots from the top of the circles are making their way into the net consistently?

2. The team is young up front. That is why the struggle in that facet and the absolute biggest reason for up and down play. Young players are inconsistent. Many people pointed this out before the season and it should not be a shock that it has come to fruition. This is the time of the year that the "wall" issue is encountered. Not sure why people are shocked by whats going on here
