It's not easy but it's Tambo's job, and he should be improving this team even if it means making hard decisions. Right now our defense is abysmal and that falls squarely on Tambo as I think the only remaining d man that was here when he took over is Smid.
You mentioned Phoenix and Nashville yet you never mentioned coaching or goaltending, which are much larger strengths than the defense....
