I am one of those who say that we need more toughness since Laraque is gone.

Last year was painful to watch (particularly before White call-up and Mara's trade). We were very intimidated and other teams were full of physical players, goons, every nights.

But let's face it, this year is not the same game. The only problem is that we play the Bruins 6 times per year... Even Toronto now has only Mike Brown as a regular ''fighter''. Orr played 2 games and Rosehill 4. Parros has been healthy scratch, Barch played 3 games, Gillies is on the minors, King did not play yet, Konopka play 1 game on 2 and I pass.

I really think that with Moen and White, we are an average team in the toughness department (whitout White it's an other story). But maybe we can use a real tough guy as 13th forward who play 10 games per year just to have something for the classless Bruins. And I really think that we need a big physical D like Shane O'Brien, Sheldon Brookbank etc.
