Defense has been an issue for the past couple of years now so that is a big concern moving forward. In regards to goaltending I hope the talk of Pavelka as an OA is put to rest. Windsor will have possibly 2 top 20 import picks or in that area and they need to get 2 top forwards asap. Nobody will say injuries haven't played a role hurting depth but even when Khokhlachev and Aleardi were going the 2nd line of Vail-Johnson-Ho-Sang hasn't been that productive. You have 2 18 year olds and a top 5 pick on your 2nd line and there isn't any chemistry and productivity.
Depth tested further today as Aleardi is out with upper body injury,held out for
Brown and Verbeek enter the lineup,Spits dressing 7 D and 9 forwards,Pavelka gets
the call in goal
As for scoring 2nd line HoSang and Johnson have 5 pts each in their last 4 games,Vail
only 2 both goals
Goiftopoulous has 5 pts in his 4 games and 10 in his last 10 nice addition
Clark has done zilch
