That's what we're trying to avoid. I know McDonagh and Staal looked like they were fine after that 3OT game playing like 50 minutes, but I don't want that situation to arise again.

We need someone who can take a regular shift, play 12-14 minutes a game and not look out of place. Not looking particularly for an offensive guy, more of a no-chances stay at home guy. Doesn't need to have a good outlet pass as they'd likely be playing with Del Zotto or Staal who can both do that. And it needs to be a righty or someone who can and has played on the right side.
