Are we a soft team?

the team is not soft just small up front. Hartnell is the only player that makes a living banging away in the crease. Carter & JVR will do it but they do not have the same make up as Hartnell. This is why the PP suffered so much. If they can't get clean passes for pretty set ups they don't score. They can't just get the puck on net and win scrambles in front, They have no one that will draw a dman into a skirmish besides Hartnell.
Plus they have noone to wear down a d or make them look over there shoulder when they are going back for a puck. Look at what eager did in the LA series. He was filthy. Look at Torres against CHI.
They would have been better off adding someone like Eager or Winchester at the deadline instead of Versteeg.
They need to let some guys walk so they can become more of a well rounded team. Hoepfully, Sestito can win a spot in camp. Plus add someone like Winchester (big, tough, inexpensive)
