Change the face of the team? Change doesn't mean improvement unless you actually improve something. Get Havlat or Gaborik? Fine. But Antropov doesn't represent an improvement.
And the Habs are not an intimidated team. They're not scared of anyone. I doubt our players **** their pants thinking about other players or anything like that. It's just that our team doesn't initiate contact, but that doesn't mean they're scared. Have you ever watched a Detroit game? They rarely hit anyone. Once a while, Kronwall or Stuart step up for a hit, but that's it. Or Datsyuk in the right situation will throw a hit. But that doesn't mean they're scared. It's just not their game. Chicago only has one line that plays physical: the 4th line. It's not playing physical that wins you games. It's scoring goals.
Sure, Detroit has more talent, but that's the point. The Habs should be trying to be like Detroit. They should be looking to add talent and improve their skill. They shouldn't be getting guys like Antropov who present no improvement except being big.
