I agree. Bickel helps though. At least he looks somewhat serviceable. And then there's McIlrath but that's another season.

Basically what I'm getting at though is a good team needs to be tough but their tough players need to have talent enough to play. Boston for instance--Chara and Lucic. Greg Campbell helps out. Thornton can play a bit as well but I think they could get by without him.

Our recent past--Orr was a real stretch as a player. Had skating issues. Brashear was just washed up and Booggard (RIP) was just not worth giving ice time too.
