We "desperately need" defensemen who can play well in their own end when it matters. Gonchar does not.
Sullivan had alot more to do with our success on the PP than Letang. We don't need a PP QB but we do need another decent point man with either a heavy shot or ability to gain the zone or both.

As for our defensive woes. We're in a position where we're forced to see if Martin/Orpik can rebound. I still think its on our overall defensive scheme and a **** defensive mindset from our forwards. Pascal Dupuis, one of the better defensive forwards in the game, made some pretty ******* plays in that Philly series as well.
