But it is definitely a make or break issue.
Danny G was surprisingly terrible tonight. The only two guys that have looked good to ok are McD and Del Z. Del Z still has issues, but he is solid for an offensive minded Dman. If we can slot him with a good stay at home Dman on the right side he will be fine.

Staal has been so-so. But not glaringly bad tonight.

I'll say it again, Bickel needs to be shot out of a cannon.
