I'm not trying to say swap Girardi with Fowler. I'm using Girardi as an example because he was our one defender that got completely destroyed in that series and it was all because he wasn't quick enough. Fowler on the other hand is one of the best skaters in the whole league. He would have been a huge asset in that series. It wasn't about physical play from our dmen, it was being too slow and a lack of conditioning that killed us. While usually really good at 1 on 1 d, Girardi and Staal were slow to every puck causing a bunch of turnovers. Girardi could barely get the puck out of the zone he was so slow.
