The strategy is to control the puck in the offensive zone as much as possible because the defense absolutely can't move the puck. Our forwards have to battle along the boards so much because we have nothing off the rush or from the point. The defense is worse than you think. We have a great forward group
Why do you think a rookie like Ouellette and DD step in and look so great? Because our defense is absolutely horrible
we need all hands on deck offensively tonight lets go
Dude there is nothing wrong with Dekeyser...
I know I like Dekeseyer the best of all our defense pretty much... he is at least the most promising. I'm just saying we're more then adding one top four defensemen away from having a good defense. We need to add another shut down dman now because Holland gave all this money to Ericsson and Q who can't play defense/move the puck
Now we finally have depth... the last pairing would have to consist of Smith/Quincey/Ouellette/Kindl with Lashoff as a 7th which makes a roster d man expendable which gets you Green. Bam RH power play specialist now we're lethal from the back end. Where does our defense scoring sit right now? Don't be fooled Yandle can handle playing defense against top lines when need be, but good thing Babs is a master of match ups and we will always have the puck
