Whos to Blame for the first 2 losses: Nabokov or Defense?

First off... in the Kings and Avs game, the Sharks lost because of 2 reasons, soft defense... and not-at-its-best goaltending.. but honestly... which one is to blame and which needs to be fixed?

Defense

  • Played well in the Ducks game and resulted in a win
  • Seemed asleep in the Kings and Avs game
  • Not communicating well
  • Seems to be having trouble getting out of the zone (noticed in the Blue Jackets game going on right now)
  • Playing way (extremely) too soft

Goaltending

  • Okay in the Ducks game (not too many hard shots to save)
  • Letting in too many soft goals in the Kings game
  • Not able to see the shot coming from the point (defense's fault?)

Overall.... i think they seem even, but the main problem is that the Sharks need to look like they want it more... they seem a bit too laid back right now, and thats what cost them at the end of the season last year (and playoffs).
