The least of the Canucks concerns against the Bruins IMO was their 'grit' level. They were the more physical team but just didn't have the horse's at the end to get it done.

Kesler is the powerforward that likes to crash the net. IMO you don't need more than 1 of those players on any given line.
This is probably right, but you do need more than one of those players in any given top 6. Kesler was the solution to Nashville but injury prevented him from providing that against Boston. The Canucks need one or two more players who can do that to ensure offence against teams like Boston or Nashville.
