He didn't answer that question - said I am really old, and said its a team game blah blah. But Hendy is an obvious candidate.

I had faith in Hendricks by just looking at his stats in Colorado. He seemed exactly that type of player we lacked. While I wondered what was wrong that Colorado didn't want him, my fears were eased when he potted a hat in preseason. Some skill and some toughness and decent enough skating to be able to hang. Those are prototype playoff guys to me. When the games get tougher, they don't have to adjust their games to hang. A guy like Flash or Sarge to compare, are just not going to adapt easily.
