Possibly a replacement for Blysma if he fails again?  Can he make them better defensively?

I'm thinking the same...Blysma must feel as though his days it Pittsburgh could very well be numbered.

Agreed. They should've gone further with the team they had last season.

Pittsburgh does not have the team to play a defensive styled game but Martin will bring some structure to their run and gun formula.

Responsibility defensively, is some something that can be taught.

It can, but you cannot let a team the Jaque Martin style when youre hampered by a at best average defense and loaded with guys like Crosby and Malkin. It's like trying to save fuel by buying Ferrari.
