I agree that the Sharks need a real defensive assistant. I don't think that a coach is living in the present day if he is advocating a passive defensive zone strategy which Shaw has. The passive strategy got killed when they expanded the offensive zones. The Sharks aren't entirely passive, but become so rapidly on scrambles.
That, too, is an issue. I think Hedican calls them out on it and so does Drew. Other than White, we have the horses to stand up teams at the blue line. This isn't like 2005-06 when we had kids on the D.

Oh well, nothing can be done now. Have to ride Shaw out.
