Pacioretty
D'agostini
Akos
Hamrlik
Komi
Latendresse
Lappiere
Kostopoulos
Koivu
Higgins
Stewart
Gorges
Cubes
Begin
Markov(Depending on his mood)
Kovalev(Depending on his mood)
How many of those guys are in the top six forwards? No one's saying that the team doesn't have enough grinders. And don't you think expecting rookies like D'Agostini and Pacioretty to play gritty in the playoffs is unrealistic? And honestly, come on, since when do guys like Higgins, Kovalev, D'Agostini, Kostitsyn, etc, not "back down to anyone"?
