the captain has lead the charge and the rest are following. even Gunn's play has improved of late.
Of late? He's been phenominal all year.
Overall, the upside of the D is very, very high. Franson, Gardiner, Schenn and even Phaneuf all are improving. Add in a kid like Blacker, who seems to have a lot of management believing he can be ready next yr, we're overflowing w/ talented D men.
