When ever I see them play, be it a little brief, they play 'Hero Hockey'. They all have so much skill to take over a game they try to do too much by themselves. Its something coaching and environment should fix.. which speaks volume of the other issues going on there, not just defense.

I wouldn't want any part of their scoring forwards,
I am no fan of Yakupov, RNH or Hall but no to Eberle? The kid can play.
defensive forwards, rushing dmen, defensive dmen, goalies, coaches, management, ownership, and lack of ability to attract free agents. That team is a house of cards on a good day.
Agreed on all else. Though I wouldn't mind having Smid.
