Hamilton Bulldogs: Building A Brick Wall Defense On The Blue Line

The Hamilton Bulldogs may finally have the defense to get back to the Calder Cup Playoffs in 2015. Defenseman Greg Pateryn returns. Pateryn was ranked ahead of Nathan Beauleau on the Bulldogs depth chart last season.

Bringing up Morgan Ellis to compliment Pateryn was smart. Ellis can fill the open void that Beauleau left. Having Pateryn and Beauleau gives Hamilton more optimism on the first line moving forward.

Over the past two days the Hamilton Bulldogs made two big moves to boost the defense. First they acquired Joe Finley. What is so special about Finley? Finley is 6-foot-8 and 250-pounds. He is a big physical defenseman that played for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Now Finley will join the Bulldogs. The other defenseman the Bulldogs obtained was Jake Powell. Powell was captain of the Iowa Wild last season in 2013-2014.

With this defense Hamilton can contend for a playoff spot if they get good goaltending. Both of the goalies that started a majority of games for Hamilton are now in the NHL. Hamilton has no quality goaltender at this point. With this defense you have to figure the new goalie has a shot.
