The West isn't about running and gunning and playing exciting hockey like it was 2-3 years ago. Being able to win battles, clog up the middle of the ice and grind out wins seems to be the way the league is heading. If we're moving back into another dead puck era, adding a couple big, strong, defensive minded players to the mix could go a long way. These are the type of players you need to beat the Kings, Blues etc. at their own game...
Jack-of-all trades, master at none. We can't go changing the entire team identity. We've already gotten tougher through the draft and Hodgson trade. We can't eliminate skill/scoring altogether.
