I know. I was shocked it was once 9th as I've felt it has been poor all year. But I think that reflects how other teams have improved and tightened up while ours has gone the wrong way.
And I realize we have a young D corps and don't have bruisers to clear the net-front, but my biggest problem is how terrible they are at keeping active sticks and taking away passing lanes. There is very little coordination. Seeing it from up high one game, it was actually embarrassing. You could tell it was just a matter of time until the goal.
