It seems like whatever defenseman we want to look good, we put with Daley.
Our D's biggest problem seems to be physical play. Just not enough size back there right now. Robidas, Daley, Goligoski are all small and Larsen plays like he is 5'10".
Regarding goalies: I think that Bachman is still young and inconsistent (25, just coming into goalie age). He is going to have ups and downs. Agreed he didn't look good out there tonight, but that doesn't say much about how he will play next game. Daley was out (our *sigh* best defenseman hands down) and the D looked rattled. Bachman was strong last year. He will be again.
Campbell is not even close to ready and is not an option in my opinion.
