At this point Spaling is as good as Legwand defensively Goose is as good and Fish can be as well. Thats the whole issue Trotz has demanded all the centers play this way. It has castrated the offense for the most part. Scoring by committee has been the mantra and when this failed this year the entire house of cards fell apart. The defense early on this year was as good as previous years but when they faltered and the injuries started to pile up it was really hard to watch on any given night.

It did serve to get a look at the young guys and get a true idea where the development was. And this is pertnant to the RFA thread since a couple veterans are needed. May not be thru the F/A signings but one there and a trade is needed bad. If for no other reason than to show the front office wants to get better. Erat was really the only veteran I really wanted to stay here. DP needs to package a defensive center with other parts to go after a 1c that will make an impact on the top 6. Im not saying it must be a first line center either. Trotz has said we have alot of redundant players and this is what I am hoping he is refering to rather than the glut of 4th liners.
