These are not tough players . Would it not be better to have a guy as tough as Nails that will put up 30/30 then one of our big 4 ? I would love a big tough second line center that can put up points , fight and have players of other teams looking over their shoulder to see if the are going to be creamed by him . Makes them rush their passes = more scoring chances for the others . I believe that Benn would make more of a difference for these reason then Yak . Plus we need a second line center .
I am no expert just being honest and seeing our team for what is is right now .
How about the Leafs give Colton Orr, Jay Rosehill, Tyler Biggs and Brad Ross to the Oilers for Ryan Nugent Hopkins?
RNH has more skill, yes, is he as tough? No.
