The definition of mediocre.
The defense is probably top 10 on paper. But the lack of competent 3rd defense pairing hinders this down from the elite tier.
Goalies are the only bright spots. Hank is the best in the world and Marty is one of the better backups. They carry this team.
I don't know why I even bother, but Brassard has been very good since coming here. And Clowe has been OK. Not great, but not horrible.
Otherwise, though, I see where you're coming from. I think the potential is there, though.
