A huge problem with this organization (and one that's going to become apparent if it isn't already) is that they're going to think they can intimidate the other team and more specifically, other teams' top players. That's just not going to happen, the first time Lappy or Hartnell slashes Crosby or AO, it's going to be straight to the box.

You can't intimidate the other team if they get 10 PP opportunities per game.

The BSB era of hockey is dead which is something this team refuses to accept and now, we're even trying to go back to that era. This team was already way too undisciplined last year and now we've added Pronger and Laperriere (that's another 250 penalty minutes).

I think your guys' infatuation with the Broad Street Bullies attitude is going to last up until about the 10th game of the season when we're shorthanded 8 or 9 times per game.

I don't believe in conspiracies, but officials are going to look at our lineup and already be predisposed to be harsh on us.
I couldnt agree more.

Just a vet to add some more stability and preferably FOs.
I would be happy with any one of those guys, with a couple caveats....If they are going to be the 3rd line center on a "shut-down" line I want Malhotra....If we are going with the 3 pairings and this is our "4th line" center, I want Goc or Gratton, in that order....

I thought we had established that they were going with the 3 pairings??? Wouldnt that be why they are looking into another top 6 winger?
