Well, I'm still pretty happy with the direction of this teams scrap players. Last years players (Ritchie, Isbister, Cowan), they weren't really good at anything. Isbister had size, didn't use it, Ritchie had grit, never saw it, Cowan could fight?, he just lost. So our bottom six didn't really excel at anything.



At least this year our fighter Hordichuk can fight, our 7th d-man Davison can hit and is willing to fight (More experience than McIver, so not a huge upgrade, but still an upgrade), Johnson is fast and can penalty kill (Ritchie could not), Bernier on the team hopefully pushes Pyatt to the bottom 6, which is an upgrade over Isbister.



So yeah, I have some optimism about at least seeing some more exciting games this year, due to our increased physicality alone.
