Zidlicky is an offensive d-man. I'm not sure what you guys expect from him in our own zone. He's not great defensively because that's not his game, and although defense is important, that element of his game is not why he was brought here.

He's 3rd on the team in assists and 5th in points. He's played his role fine.

A year ago this defense literally carried the team to the Cup finals. They haven't forgotten how to play the game, and guys like Fayne, Greene, and Larsson have gotten even better. Salvador has regressed a bit, but pretty much the rest of them are exactly where they were last season.

The defense is not the problem at all. We're missing a top 6 winger, and as a result, we have several players playing one line higher than they should be.
