I agree on a lot of your points. The only thing I would argue is that we're not that poorly constructed for defense. I think we just need a good defensive strategy. The team has proven that they can literally shut down opponents when they want to. It's just too bad those instances are becoming a rarity. If players like Moon and Delfino could actually defend the way they were expected to, we'd probably have a couple extra wins.
I think we're just a very poor communicating team. The only person who really keeps everyone in on the play is Jose because he's approaching team mates and talking. Ford almost never does that. When defensive breakdowns happen, who's out there yelling? Primoz, the NEW guy.
But you're right, there is room for improvement and I'd like BC to try to pick up some assets, but not just for the sake that they're European. I'd rather acquire one guaranteed star player rather than gamble on 5 potentials and hope one is a diamond in the rough.
