True. Still even when healthy the results weren't there. I agree that on paper a top six of Timonen, Schenn, Coburn, Grossmann, Gus, and Meszaros is pretty solid. But they need to translate that into consistent effort. I'm not saying we should blow it up or really make any major changes (I would be open to moving Meszaros), and I think that getting consistent goaltending would go a long way in improving the symbiotic goalie-defense relationship, but they still need to tighten up significantly.
