I'm not saying we need to acquire those guys, my argument is that truculence will marginally contribute much more to our top 6 than skill, therefore substracting one ouf Pouliot or Kostitsyn in favor of a less truculent and more skilled Zherdev is not optimal.
You have just surpassed Brian Burke for #1 on the list of lifetime uses of the word Truculence.
