Schultz's defense has been fine. Average defense to compliment all-world offense. It's kind of how like Brian Campbell manages to look so good all the time. Puck seems to constantly be going the other way when he's on the ice.

The Barons' problems arise from the same issues the Oilers are having. Piss-poor depth. They actually have a decent 3rd/4th line, but the offensive production hasn't been there from them to compliment their solid checking play.

But that bottom-4 defense has been atrocious. Besides Schultz-Marincin, the other pairings have been an accident waiting to happen. Teubert, Plante, Ringwald, Henry, and Zahn are basically average ECHL players that are struggling to keep it together. Fedun's been average, I have no complaints from him given his pedigree and development thus far. But that bottom 3-4 defense needs to improve.

Goaltending's kind of been an issue too. Danis is no longer the stud he was last year, and Roy's been underwhelming in his AHL debut. I'd like to see what Bunz could do up here.
