We can have all the fighters in the world, the team lacks skill at the forward position and will have trouble winning games without skill.
One issue at a time, alright? It's A LOT easier to fill the lack of grit problem compared to a lack of pure talent. I think the best thing with the new Bergevin/Therrien era is that they want 1st line players on their 1st line, 3rd line players on their 3rd line and real 4th line players on their 4th line. Players will have specific roles but wIth the same constent work ethic. My guess is Bergevin will strike big one day either a signing or blockbuster trade to fill that talent hole on the top 2 lines, ala Hossa in Chicago.
