Its not just the fights. This team has been limp wristed for far to long this season. It can't just be up to Hordichuk, Allison, and Stevenson to play physical.

To long have our players passed on checking an opponent. Hall and Hartnell have almost been an embarresment with their lack of physical play. I love tick tack toe plays and things like that and I think its awesome that we have Kariya and Sullivan. however we also have guys who can bring the physical game and they just aren't doing it.

I should add that untill Markov was hurt he was playing much more physical. Infact he is becoming one of my fav. predators.

I think for Nashville to be a viable franchise in the NHL they will always have to be one of the more physical teams in the league. Its not like the preds are much smaller then the 03-04 season. We played a lot different then though. We played a more in your face we won't back down from anyone. I'm sorry but its sickening to watch this team on some nights.
