The biggest issue is how TERRIBLE they are at clearing the puck. I have never seen so many failed clearing attenpts by a team over the course of a season. People need to watch games and not just look up stats. The defense has played pretty bad, and i don't know how people can say they have played good
Bryz has been bad and inconsistent on his end too, but I think it's wrong when people act like the defense and the whole team is playing great, and Bryz is the sole one letting the team down and holding them back, that is simply untrue
I'm not saying the defense doesn't have some significant issues with breakdowns and turning over the puck. But to state Bryz has had zero help is bogus.
In fact I remember several games earlier in the season where we played a NYR style D and he still let in his normal 3GA.
I however do believe Bryz is a major cement block strapped to the feet of this team. Its become even more clear at who carried who last year as the offense this season has been very average and our record has reflected it.
