As I pointed out hodgson may be viewed as the worst on D for the top line. But he has been improving given before tonight's game he took his -5 +\- rating to an even 0. IMO coho deserves to be cut some slack given he is in his first season on the top line. Everyone seems to be oblivious to that fact. Truthfully there isn't really in my opinion a consistent defensive shut down forward on this team that hasn't made a mistake this season. And coho can't do it all on the top line defensively. I can't say with a straight face pommer and vanek have played any stretch of consistent defensive hockey this season. That being said I totally agree with your last statement both pommers and vanek need to step up their defensive games as well.
