I'm not saying what I want or don't want. Bottom six doesn't necessarily have to be huge heavyweight haymaker throwers. Look at Ferriero. Guys like that I see as ideal bottom six guys. Speed. Strength. Some skill. I never saw guys like Rupp or Scott or Asham, to a lesser extent, to make most of the bottom six. Bottom six doesn't necessarily have to have all the skill. Just... Not all pylons or goons. It's tough because right now we have a top heavy team with less than desired bottom depth. It's frustrating, and to see Bickel now on the fourth line is annoying.

That being all said I think if we pick up or trade for or draft a few size and speed bottom 6 guys soon, a center and some wings, we will look much better. I don't want to be overloaded on the top 6 and have no bottom.
