These players dont compare in terms of being able to win battles along the boards consistently and retaining the puck using their body.
In terms of forwards, I think laps and lats are among our best based on the above mentioned qualities
Actually, I think we can rely on them without any problems.
We didn't lose in the POs last year because we lacked puck control or losing battles along the boards easily.
I think we lost in the POs last year because of the lack of production at Even Strength and a Dcorps that was overpowered.
Our unsuccessful PP made us fix that ES scoring. So that's already better.
As for our D last year, Komi was still injured, Gorges/Bouillon/Streit are small..Breezer, well we all know how easy it is to push him off the puck.
We had Markov that wasn't dominant and rumored to have been injured as well. We only had Komi that was a true beast for us on D last POs. Although Gorges was decent, he wasn't as good as he is now.
I think we need a solid D, not necessarily a top 2 a la Bouwmeester, but maybe a 4th with size.
This would be the best addition IMO.
