Agreed.

I think we have some solid talent defensively but the mix is bad. I don't think Niskanen is a good partner for Letang and I don't think either of Bortuzzo or Despres have been as good with Engelland as Niskanen was last year. Two D pairs are worse because of that.

I think Shero needs to upgrade Letang's D partner. I'd say that's possibly an even a bigger priority than a winger since I think this team will score a lot of goals as long as 87 and 71 are healthy.
