It was apparent a few months ago, that if Hamilton was going to compete, above average goaltending would make the difference. You have to compete with the big dogs with a sub 2.00 GAA.
Now to get there you need better goaltending or better acountability from the defenceman and backchecking forwards. Problem solved and we noticed the tenders took up the slack and the team defence became a committment because everyone was defence conscious. This trait has been a Hamilton staple for a long time. You seem to going down the right road. Just like Hamiton Rep Boys hockey!
