They really need defense, or this team will go nowhere. They're ability to carry the puck up ice, and play the man with pressure really hurts them in games. Last night they would get hemmed in their own zone for 1-2 minutes at a time. It's a game that again, I can't believe they won.
And the bolded nothing to do with the coaching?

It's a typical HF argument. One thing that's good is not reflective of Ruff. One thing that's bad is reflective of Ruff. Can't pick and choose your arguments.

On terms of their D - Look at the way Dillon is playing under Ruff. Undrafted. Having a great year under Ruff - looking like a lefty Girardi with more bite. He's got Oleksiak on the NHL roster who probably isn't ready yet. Gonchar is 39 and put up four assists in the game yesterday.

Getting a lot out of a little.
