I wouldn't call any of those 3rd and 4th liners core players...
I probalbly should have used the term remaining team members. I agree that the actual core should probalbly be limited to Price, Subban, Emelin, Patches, Eller, Galyenchuk, Tinordi, etc.. I feel adding to this core with another couple solid young players and high picks is where will be successful. I guess im down on Kristo, Gallagher and Leblanc because Im tired of us developing smaller less physical players. We seem to have this love of midgets and smaller players. The last two cup winners were rich in size and toughness. I don't see this trend stopping. As long as the game is played on a surface of 200-85 we need to adjust. Owners are never going to expand ice surfaces at a cost of 300-400 seats. I also feel that we can hardly consider ourselves a serious cup contender as we sit. By adding a coupla high picks, a coupla free agents will be closer.
