Even though he's very good, it's a HUGE problem when your best defensive forward is a 19 year old rookie and your second best is a 3rd/4th line tweener (Talbot). If we ever want to succeed in the playoffs, especially with this current system,
our forwards need to become better defensively and buy into playing at both ends of the ice.
EDIT: It's sad also watching what's happening to Kimmo. You can tell he's trying as hard as he can, but whether it's injury or age, he's fallen a step or two from where he's been the past couple of years.
This is exactly what I have been saying in the other thread.
