The only “truculence” I see there is Brown and (maybe) Armstrong.

Interesting shift, no?

He made a big mistake on how he started to rebuild that team.
Another team getting less tough, despite the consensus around here that every team in the league except the Habs is in an enforcer arms race.

They still have good size and strength on their defense, but I hardly see truculence.
