Then again, their blueline has been worn extremely thin with Suter's bait-and-switch. Josi's awesome but he doesn't move the puck the way Suter did, and guys like Ellis and Blum aren't ready for the roles they're having to take. And the backup substitutes are bottom-pairing types.
Next year ought to be better down there, but right now they're despairing.
Agreed, but they've been playing a hard nosed grinding style and having success consistently for a decade, as opposed to the 2 I mentioned in the post which did it for a season or two then struggled.
