Of course it would be nice to add another top 9 power forward type who will stick up for their teammates but i don;t think it will make a difference between this team winning a cup or not. They have enough guys, imo, that can stick up for players. I mean if that was such a concern around the NHL you'd have at least one guy who will drop the gloves on each of your top 3 lines. But you don't see that. You barely see it on the 3rd line. If they want to add such a player i'm sure there will be something at the deadline available. I, myself, still hold out hope for Iginla at the deadline as a rental. He can go back to CGY after the year is over.
I just know that just by looking around the division most of the teams have those types of players. I also know that they are invaluable to a team and that I envy the fact that the Flyers have both Simmonds, the Penguins have Kunitz, the Devils have Clarkson. Those players are difficult to play against because they can do it all.
