I propose that a Shootout Specialist is worth more to a team than a Goon

Tell ya what, you can have your Ryan Clowe and McIlrath/Vandermeer...I'll take Brad Richards and a true puck moving defenseman. What team do you think is going to be more competitive?
I would say take a poll...but you and all your buddies think alike.
Everyone is in love with Richards and Flower...but I would take Clowe and McIlrath and then having small skilled guys like Thomas, Horak, Bourque, Zucc and Hagelin wouldn't be a hinderance.
I will bet you anything you want...if Bruins and Habs meet up...the Bruins will destroy the Habs...if the rangers do not incorporate size and grit, we will be another version of the Habs.
I always used the '94 team as a point of reference, that is how you build a winning team, guys who could play and break your face if they had to.
Can't have all pansies on your team, as much as you would like that.
