Not sure if adding more Grit would be the answer. As a Ranger fan who watched every game Philly played in the Playoffs, I don't think at anytime I thought that this Philly team was soft, and wasn't going hard into the boards to dig pucks out.
In my opinion the reason that Philly lost, was a lack of veteran leadership. Not a rah rah type guy, but a guy who has won before and could help the young guys remain calm when a call doesn't go there way or the pressure is on.
While Jagr has that experience I don't think he will ever be confused with a true leader, I think getting Pronger back will absolutely be a big help, and maybe adding another vet would help greatly.
Just my thought, otherwise I think you guys are going to be a threat for a long time to come!
