Jagr, Carle, and JvR hit totals last season combined: 106

Schenn and Doan combined: 475. Plus it opens the door for Brayden Schenn and Couts to be played more, as well as Voracek, Simmonds, and Sestito...more size.


Yes I know hits don't mean everything, but with our recent need for big wingers...just being big doesn't always do the trick, especially not in an uptempo forechecking game that Lavy has us playing.
I love every aspect of this post. Jvr specifically I expected to use his size more. He seemed too soft on the boards
