Del Z stepping up is the only saving grace. Look how quickly our 'depth' turned into a HUGE issue for us.
Im sorry but im more concerned with our forward offense. Its been probably 70% of the issue this season. Richards, Gaborik and the bottom six.
Our blueline has been the focus of this teams drafting for years on ****ing end now. Its been a ****** year, but Staal's injury is a big hit here. The defense hasnt played that great but in comparison with the offense, is still much better. Girardi, Staal, McDonagh, Del Zotto, Stralman (who at times has been our best defenseman), Eminger, kids in McIlrath, Skjei, etc. is fine compared to Richards, Gaborik, Boyle, Pyatt, Asham, Newbury, Miller, etc.
Our entire bottom six is much much much much more of an issue than our blueline.
This team needs impact forwards and forward prospects, not more ****ing defense. Stralman, DZ and McDonagh woud all fare better in a more uptempo offense. We dont really need to discuss the PP coaching do we?
Im just not of the ilk that thinks we need to take from our offense (in the form of a 40 goal guy) to add more to our already congested blueline.
