Our top players need to play better The biggest issue is if you honestly look at is we only have 3 true top 6 players in Kovy, Elias and Clarkson. Henrique should really be our 3rd line checking center ATM but he gets elevated and is not quite that player yet. Just as we have a bunch of second / third pair D . Larsson shows flashes but hes not a top 2 D yet. Neither is Andy Greene. When you have a solid but not spectacular team when your best dont play well nights like today will happen,
Don't even sugarcoat Josefson, he's been awful. He half-caused the PK goal against by drifting towards Gionta leaving the point wide open.

Yeah Zajac and Henrique need to play better but it's not like they're going anywhere soon, we have to ride it out with them. We don't need to ride it out with Josefson right now, he can stay in Albany a while longer. Especially when he can't even perform his 'strength' (defensively) right now.

And if we were playing defensemen on merit, Harrold would deserve to play over like four guys today. Only Fayne and Sal didn't completely blow, although Sal trying to hold pucks in the zone is usually a recurring nightmare.
