What I do see are constant failed clearing attempts along the boards that lead into extended attack zone time for the other team, and a defense that leads the league in being shorthanded.

They can get a better goalie than Bryz for less money in 2014 after they buy him out, but they will never be a good team again until these glaring flaws are addressed.
He's brought in stay at home defensemen ill-suited for Lavi's system, as well as Fedotenko, who is good defensively but isn't so hot at hard forechecking. The team as it's currently built doesn't make too much sense.
