It's a great regular season formula, but doesn't translate into the more grueling playoffs as well. With your skill players up front however, you should be able to move some of them in the offseason and get bigger in your top 6.
Lats just doesn't seem to have it, and outside of him you don't really have any offensive power forwards do you? I know there's MP in the pipeline, but how far away is he, and what kind of upside are you looking at?
My question; is that Montreal's style? As far back as I can remember they've mostly been about the speed and skill game. Can anyone honestly see them move out skill and speed for skill and grit?
How about skill and grit? The Flyers grit guys can also play hockey and they can all skate. That team was built for the playoffs from scratch. They'll be even better next year when they fix their D a bit and maybe get Gagne back.
Koivu is our only grit guy with skill up front imo. Tender is still blossoming. Pacioretty and Chipper are badly needed, hopefully they develop quickly.
