I would tend to agree. Teams like the Bruins, Toronto, Philly, NY, etc. have never shown "mercy" on us just because we didn't hit them back. Quite the contrary. They took liberties, roughed us all night long and didn't think about retaliation as there was none.

Bringing in more toughness will at least allow us to compete on equal level (well maybe not yet but we're getting closer).
