Apparently a lot of people disagree.

Didn't you guys read all the press about how badly GMs wanted proven top 4 defensemen at the deadline but simply couldn't get one? They are in short supply. We'd do well to keep those that we have, and look to fix the center position at the deadline, if it even needs to be.

LA Kings had one of the worst regular season offenses and power plays of the playoff teams.
I agree. I'd love to keep the top four as is, although that may not be realistic. I believe that, along with Hank, are main reasons why this team was able to stay in games. I recognize the offensive deficiencies, part of which I attribute to running out of gas as well as the type of players up front, but there needs to be a balance and having top defense and goaltending is never a bad thing when trying to win games consistetnly.
