I don't think we are far off, like if you turn around that argument -- how many new North-South players do we need to compete with Anaheim or Philly as a N-S team? In terms of N-S players Philly is miles ahead of us. Not to mention a team like Anaheim.

In the end, our system is a E-W system, thats not even up for debate really. We play a controlled transition game, we want to open up ice in the neutral zone by having a fast LW that skips the zone early, while having centers who can transport the puck.
