From the games I've seen, our defense is getting caught out of position more than I'm accustomed to, which is leading to odd man breaks. And it seems like our forwards are not committing to the back check as much when other teams are getting it deep. Not to mention, our goalie play has been significantly worse this year than previous years.

That being said, we are still second place in our division despite most of us being upset at how we're playing...

I think Rod may trust some guys a little too much. Thats about it. He needs to realize where the weaknesses are and address them instead of going on blind faith. We all knew we needed another centerman and that didnt happen. We all knew we needed more help in scoring, that didnt happen. We all knew the goal tender situation needed to be addressed and it wasnt. The offseason was spent on trying to be tougher and grittier when that really wasnt the issue at all.

It was an issue, just not the top priority as some thought it was. Nonetheless, it was addressed with an every-night guy in Bunting and a role-player in Lemieux. Orlov was added, although that is still a head-scratcher when everyone knew TDA was coming back. 

I don't care how tough and gritty a team is. If that team is winning consistently, they're going to take some hits along the way. Toughness and grit don't win games, goal scoring does. And that's the part nobody addressed.

    • Gee, do ya think it took long enough for the league? But yeah, the forecheck was crazy good on that possession. From the first keep-in by Drury, and then Chatty and Orlov along the boards, the Bruins were toast about the time Svech came on the ice, they were just standing around gassed at that point.
    • After that maybe Payton Wilson, Austin Booker or a RB 
    • Cornerbacks Cooper DeJean, Iowa It feels like the Panthers haven’t had a dynamic, game-changing corner since Josh Norman. But DeJean, a member of The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List 2023, both looks and plays the part. DeJean returned three of his seven interceptions with the Hawkeyes for touchdowns and was the Big Ten’s punt returner of the year in 2023. He’s coming off a broken leg that ended his season in November. Kool-Aid McKinstry, Alabama McKinstry practiced with the Crimson Tide’s basketball team for a few months after enrolling at Alabama in 2021 before sticking with football. Good choice. The polished cover corner led the SEC with 16 pass breakups as a sophomore and was an All-American as a junior. Brugler called McKinstry a “long, smooth athlete” with a high football IQ who reminds him of former Panthers CB James Bradberry. Kamari Lassiter, Georgia Lassiter, once viewed as a first-round pick, saw his stock drop after a slow (4.64) 40 time at his pro day. Lassiter didn’t get his hands on many passes as an outside corner and some teams view him as a nickel-only, per Brugler. But he has good instincts and didn’t allow more than two catches in a game all of 2023. Max Melton, Rutgers The 5-11, 187-pound Melton has explosive speed and a history of production, racking up eight interceptions and 30 pass breakups over his final three seasons at Rutgers. He also has a knack for making big plays on special teams: His three blocked punts in 2022 were the most in FBS.
