They weren't great defensively and I do see that as a legit concern for Olli and Wheels, but Kane isn't a real liability. He may screw up, but he executes more than enough breakouts to make up for it.
Regardless, most of their minus was about goalies not making saves. I believe they were getting beat possesion wise (something like 49%, but it wasn't Kane-Olli-Mittens bad.
I can't remember the exact numbers, but after the first month or so Pav and Al had combined for something like a .850 save percentage with Wheeler on the ice.
Wheeler could be more responsible in his own zone, but it wouldn't hurt a goalie to make a save every now and again.
So... what Garret said.
