Ottawa's defence has been ok, but you don't tend to notice the errors as much when they don't result in a puck in the net.

Wiercioch's game-ending pass to Ribeiro in the slot is a good example.

I'm with some of the more cynical posters in that a team with 3 AHL d-men is going to have some struggles, once the goaltending cools down.

We can only hope that Karlsson and Gonchar stay healthy, Methot stays the course, and that Phillips can somehow raise his level of play after sitting out the lockout.

I'm pleased with aspects of our AHLers play but I'm certainly not convinced that they are NHL ready yet. Wiercioch to me still seems like the most likely candidate.
