To make a real difference in physicality to our 3-4 lines, we should have them both.
Actually, to make a real difference, we should still get rid of Abdelkader, and swap in Prust and Pyatt, for example.

People have turned sour on Abdelkader not because of his size or physicality, but because of his impact. He has no "it" factor; he isn't a sparkplug. No one fears fighting him, no one expects him to land a game-changing hit, no one would consider him a candidate for a clutch goal. Until he does something to to differentiate his game from the pack, he's just a semi-physical 4th line plug.

That said, I'd get rid of Emmerton and the like before Abdelkader.
