But I hear you, and to an extent I agree. This team is filled with speed and skill but lacks size and physicality. Luckily we're playing on an airport-sized rink.
I wouldn't call it
soft though. Out of the top-9, Salomäki is as tough and physical as they get. Armia and Barkov, while not physical, will have no problems whatsoever with physical game and corner battles. The rest, well... Small, fast, skilled, not very strong.
Also we'll be able to ice a pretty rough n' tumble 4th line. Lamberg might not be very big but my god that kid is scary to watch. He's a human torpedo and he is completely lacking in the self-defense instinct compartment.
