Our forwards are fine - more than fine, good. We've got the top end talent (back), and for once we have the depth to make us a real threat offensively.

Unfortunately, we have 3 functioning defensemen in the NHL, 4 (maybe 5) in the entire organization. Robidas is useless unless his minutes get seriously cut, Goligoski has just been atrocious (what the **** was he doing in OT...), Benn is nothing more than a #6 at best, and Rome won't be anything but a bottom-pairing defender. We need help, and now. Oleksiak won't fix all of our problems, either, but he'd help a ton.

And if a guy like Laviolette gets canned, Gully better be gone quick. I don't care about 3 coaches in four years, he's proven enough to show that he's pretty incompetent as a coach (although most of the problems revolve around two players - there's that leadership group again). I'm still wondering why Joe didn't try and get rid of all four of them this summer.
