Not only that, but what team that has a shot of making the playoffs actually qualifies as that type of team any more? Chicago is the only team in the West you could describe in that way last season and they just traded away their three toughest/meanest players. Obviously they didn't feel they were as integral to their success as their small skilled players when they were deciding where to make sacrifices on their roster.
