From Louise Eriksson and Patricia Bergeron to Carla Soderberg and Christine Kelly this team is way too soft. Dougie Hamilton seems to have chronic yeast infection and Matt Bartkowski likely has a bottle of Midol in his locker.
Seriously, this team is not close to the scrapping '11 cup winning team. A old and unwilling Thornton, a game, but easily beaten-to-a-pulp Campbell, another oldster in Chara and a (supposedly) too valuable to sit for 5 Lucic make this team soft.
All the talk is getting a Sieds replacement which is much more expensive than adding a couple willing battlers.--- It's not simply fighting. We need guys who will give a shove here and there instead of staring down at the ice to avoid a confrontation. (Reilly Smith *always* does this). Iginla finally shoved back last night and it changed the complection of the whole game. A simple shove!
We need more snarl people and to add a wash-up like Chris Phillips is not addressing the real problem.
