Well so far the regular d-man (Ehrhoff and Rome) have been our worst. The kids are playing alright.

Honestly, Ehrhoff has been absolute garbage in his own zone. Great on the PP but man he makes the Bieksa of the past couple seasons look like Lidstrom out there.

Agree.. of course Rome has never been good enough to play top 4 minutes and it looks like Erhoff is played out.. maybe too much time on the ice for the last couple weeks? Another problem is the forwards are not backchecking enough and leaving the defensive zone a little too quickly.. Thats ok when you got top Dmen out there but not in our present position. The forwards got to take a bit more pressure off the D..

Other than the occasional flub, his problems seem to have compounded when Edler went down. He's overtaxed, plain and simple. Isn't Salo a regular D man?

I don't however think he's in Bieksa of last year territory or anything.
