This deserves to be stated again (minus the friendly sarcasm):

...there's still the fundamental problem that our defense is undersized and/or slow, and this results in us getting penned in deep in or zones. The fact that we gave up the lead in that particular game may have been a fluke. But it also more plausible that the fact we had a lead to begin with was a fluke. We should have been blown out in the first period.
Then do what Camper suggested, adding more of a bigger size and Smash-Mouth element and you have a dangerous club.

You want to close games out? Fix these things, and the only way you do it is by replacing/upgrading some of the sacred cow Mary boys in the top 6 and top 4. While we have grown comfortable with Moulson, Kyle, Bailey, Nielsen, Grabner, and undersized defensemen not named Hamonic, the average physique of the club needs to evolve into something better than the geek squad or chess club.
