Talented new blood like Diaz can hopefully bring some staying power on the D, with a healthy Gorges and Campoli. Maybe Emelin, if he keeps improving and someone else falters.

Brad Marchand was 'tough' in the same way last year, and became more and more important to the Bruins as the playoffs went on, because of his youth and stamina.
