White will lose his first scrap and everyone will hate him.
Out of all those guys Gionta still plays bigger. Goes to show "on paper" means jack squat.
I guess your still bitter about Saku leaving Montreal?
I don't just meaning hitting and all. I mean they won't be knocked around all the time and will step out, you don't need to go out and fight everything shift or hit everything that moves. Just smart hockey get the puck to the net. Size is a big factor when your going to the net and lets say a 6'2 210 pound dman leans into you. We need that size. Not for your reasons for hitting and fighting. Just need guys to stay on their skate froms a hit and get to the net and in the corners.
By the way, I think Eller stayed in there getting crosschecked from behind by 6'7 Myers of Buffalo the other night. Stayed with the puck and battled pretty well with him.
Moen is a great forechecker and can dish it out and take a hit. The others can hold their own as well.
