Agree with your assessment of the bottom six... but for me, its three guys that are the problem, not all six: TK, CMFA, and Glass. I don't see how TK fits anywhere anymore, and Adams is just a waste. Cookie is fine, though I wish he'd just make the hit sometimes (yes, really) and I think Jeffrey doesn't fit the system whatsoever.
Our aggression in general in our own zone is questionable. Its like we're not comfortable on defense at all. Bad example since it didn't end well, but the B's were happy to play defense against the best offensive weapon in the game, and probably would have done the same if Geno was playing also. Brooks, Engo, Tanger and Nisky look like they are anxious and uneasy back there, and its a constant series of mistakes & turnovers.
How Eaton has not earned his 3rd pair spot and how 47/58 isn't your top pair is completely beyond me. No leadership on the blue line these days, at all.
