By our defense.
I always thought they were bad the year after we lost Tallinder and Lydman. After they signed my preferred defenseman (Ehrhoff) and brought in Regehr I thought they would have a really good defense with Sekera and Myers growing up and loads of young defensemen in the pipeline.
But Regehr didn't live up to his expectations, Leopold was really bad, Myers was equally bad. Ehrhoff and Sekera were average. Sulzer and Pardy were useless, only Weber turned his game around, Pysyk was exciting. However, the hole dug with veteran defensemen Leopold&Regehr on the team was too big for that short season.
Now we might end up trading for another Top4 D-man instead of filling needs in the forward group.
Sure, certain forwards also played bad this season, but the 2.90 goals against per game combined with a league worst 33.5 shots against per game just can't be matched by our offense, if they are playing in their own end most of the time...
