I don't want goons but in the end, we have to get tougher.
Of the 4 names you mention, White and Moen are physical players willing to drop the gloves, Darche is at least willing to go to the net (and can in a pinch sit as a 13th forward anyway), and Pouliot may or may not be back.
It's also not a given that we will find a new top 6 forward on the market. That may create another bottom 6 hole. OR the top 6 forward we do find could be a tougher player like an Erik Cole.
Agreed, right now we lack size and physicality in our top 6. But in the bottom 6, you only have Desharnais as a not physical guy (Eller does not shy away from taking the body either), so there is plenty of room to toughen the team up.
