Nikulin and moreso Zubov were good soldiers who spent quite a bit of time in Bingo, even when it was becoming clear that big, gritty guys were first and foremost on Murray's mind after the Anaheim loss. The problem wasn't those two guys, it was the other half dozen guys that Ottawa invested heavily in during the 2002-07 drafts who never came over.

Foligno is big and gritty.

DaCosta will **** you up if you call him soft... and really, he doesn't look soft. He looks like he's eventually going to piss a lot of players off with his tenacity.
