Good at faceoffs, but he's never jumped out at me subjectively or objectively with his defense.

I truly think they have to trade one of the Offensive Three (Ennis, Hodgson, Grigs) for an elite, two-way center, and then add a 4C who can eat up defensive-zone starts, thereby allowing the remaining Offensive Two to play cushy offensive minutes. They also have to add some better defensive defensemen. I wouldn't hate Scuderi.

They also need a new defensive system implemented.
