We need both. Sorry but you can't have a line of Gomez, Gionta and Cammy... it's just not going to work.

We've tried to win with small teams and it hasn't worked. And for all the talk of us trying to win on skill... that's ludicrous. Our skilled guys aren't close to what other clubs have had. Alexi Kovalev is the closest we've had to an elite player. We sit here and talk about how it's our skill vs. the size of other clubs. Well, the best clubs have had more size AND skill than we have so I'm not sure what the apologists are trying to say here.

We don't have to be the biggest team but we should try to avoid being the smallest. Getting some top end talent for once sure would help too.
