The Bruins only got to where they are because TT stood on his head for the entire season. We if anything need to follow the Red Wings model. But that of course requires an owner who genuinely cares about his team.

We have a premiere goalie and top defensive line. Gaborik is a glass statue and is too unreliable. What we need is a true center, we've been trying to work around having one for years not and it's not working. No NHL (or NBA team for that matter) has won a championship in recent memory without a true legitimate front line center, who can above all else score.
If you think Gaborik is too unreliable, then why would you want a whole team of him?

Also as someone said before, this extreme will get us just as far as a team full of grinders. The only difference is that we probably will go down without a fight.
