We need the defense so much more than we need the offense. Teams with good defense and weak offense can still make the playoffs. Teams with good offense and horrible defense don't.

We can't be afraid to shake things up. And I would rather build a solid defense now. We already have a sick 1st line with Hall/RNH/Eberle that will be here for a long time. More than most teams will say. IMO that really makes defense a priority over secondary scoring. Secondary scoring would be the easiest thing to trade for/sign, or even draft
