While I'd agree that the Habs don't need to be restricted to looking for grinder/size, I don't think you can rule it out either. Teams win the cup by their make-up and teams have won it with elite goaltending, offence, toughness, etc..., etc...

As long as that elite quality is one that gives you advantage enough to win-out, it doesn't matter what it is. We need some guys who can supplement depth scoring and contribute to our d-system. I think it'd be a luxury to have a door-man for Subban, Emelin, Pacioretty, Desharnais, and most especially Carey Price. That's a nice group (although I'm reaching on Emelin). Conventional wisdome is to protect guys like that and limit the fights.
