It's a matter of semantics, but I would classify their defense as more of an unknown at this point. Last season, the defense was definitely the main cause of the team's poor playoff showing. There are a lot of new faces this season, and Vellucci focused on acquiring talent in this area during the offseason. Whether the new players are an improvement remains to be seen.

Mahalak, though, is a very well known commodity in net. He fights the puck at times, and also gets himself out of position. I think the team needs to upgrade here if it wants to make a run at the OHL title.
