They can't play defense and we lack size in our lower forward lines. Also beside Couturier we are are small as hell up the middle. Giroux is no where near the Richards level of selke play. As good as he is offensively he is overrated defensively. People say Oh yea he plays PK that doesn't necessarily mean they are very good defensively. Sure we got bigger on the wings on our top lines but we got smaller in our lower lines and up the middle. Jagr, Simmonds, and Hartnell have just been invisible. Jagr should not be resigned.
Carle just makes to many bad decisions and gets banged around on a fierce forecheck.. Kimmo is a warrior but he is on his last leg. He will be hanging them up soon. He is slow and just isn't that same stabilizing influences on the back end. Grossman is alright but we only seen a small sample size of him. Coburn has finally took his game to another level. Gus is soft. He has been horribe in the NJ series. The very thing i thought that would expose him is exposing him. A hard forecheck will cause him to crumble. He also makes bad passes to his D-partner which gets them in trouble.
The team defense needs to be totally revamped.
