Rypien barely played. He was a capable player though.

Thornton is far from a goon, he put up good production the year they won the cup as a 4th line player. Excellent on the forecheck and protecting the puck.

Janssen and Boulton were scratches down the stretch and didn't sniff any minutes during the playoffs. Pure goons like Bickel aren't needed in this league anymore. 2 meatheads in Rupp and Asham are fine and in the case of Asham, he can actually play hockey.
