The organizational blind spot for defense strikes again. You guys can micro-analyze all you want, but at the end of the day, we have one top four d-man -- and he's 20 years old.

Tim Gleason is no better than Jay Harrison. Sanguinetti and Corvo have no business in the league. And Joni Pitkanen is maddeningly frustrating, having all the skills but seemingly no idea what to do with them. The combined hockey sense of the five of them barely approaches Faulk's.

Our guys get forechecked so easily, get pushed around like ragdolls, and even if they don't lose the puck, their first pass is so bad than we lose all momentum.

I've come to the conclusion that we're just not going back to the playoffs until the defense is overhauled, and it's just not my job to solve the problem.
