I agree. What makes it real bad is our only answer seems to be Hannan. Then you're not getting cycled on because teams are skating around him on the rush.

Bartley, Blum and Ellis are offensive defensemen, that aren't overly physical.

Josi has a good 2 way game and doesn't seem to get pushed around much, Weber is a beast and Klein can handle his own in the defensive zone. What we need is Ekholm to pan out and be able to replace one of the 3 listed above.

Josi-Weber
Klein-Ellis (actually isn't bad because of Klein's speed and defensive play and Ellis offense and passing.
Ekholm-Blum/Bartley
