Or maybe you guys like seeing guys run over Price and getting away with it? I sure don't !!! because with that group of 8 defense we have signed not 1 of them have the qualities that i have talked about to stand up for PRICE. and please don't say Francis Bouillon would sick up for price he is almost 40 and is 5'7 and has got into 4 fights since 2009 and has lost all of them.
Very much agree. They literally have one guy who focuses on being a physical D, and that's Emelin, who like you said, can't fight, and has just one season under his belt. Getting Tinordi in 2 years or so will not be enough to balance out the puck movers and physical D on this team. I don't know if McQuaid is the answer, but i'm with you philosophically speaking. The team needs some intimidating players on D, and right now they barely have any.
