I really do think the issue lies in the lack of size, grit, and general nastiness of our defense. The current group outside of Scuds and Doughty are just not getting it done in front of the net. When Quick leaves a rebound, Mitchell and Greene are great at getting to a loose puck by knocking someone on their ass and clearing away the danger. Mitchell and Greene also excel at clearing out shooting lanes. Quick is dealing with more traffic than normal because our current bottom 4 couldn't clear Justin Azevedo out of a shooting lane.
We are just undersized right now and it needs to be addressed sooner than later.
I thought the kIngs were one of the biggest teams in the league. Maybe we are not undersized but maybe playing smaller than what we are.
Plus when you look at teams like the Habs they are small and getting it done. I think it is more about the players sacking up and getting it going.
