They can make up for what they lack in toughness with skill... by a lot. They are one of the only teams that can actually do that though because of their constant surplus of skilled players. This team is not even close in the skill department, so it's irrelevant right now.
that's for a championship caliber team...to be competitive though, I dont think you need to be all that tough so long as you have adequate skill.

let's also mention that having #30 between the pipes nullifies a lot of the players you mention when compared to who the Wings had between the pipes (not counting Hasek, who even at that point wasn't what he was during his prime)


I still stand behind my opinion that we should have gone for broke and traded for Heatley by waiving either Redden or Rozsival.

But that's neither here nor there.
