And that's the thing, I don't think anyone would be upset if we signed a Scott type player to a two way contract and played him against the Bruins.

I just think it's pathetic how insecure this fanbase has gotten that everything revolves around playing the Bruins in the regular season. John Scott isn't getting us to the playoffs, if our biggest need right now was a 14th forward who plays in two games, we'd be planning for the parade by now.

Our 4th line is playing great right now, hardly the biggest need. And I think we would all love to replace Kaberle with a big, stay at home defender, but there's no halfway decent options out there that wouldn't cut into the cap space, and we have Tinordi coming up in a year.

To me, being soft means playing scared. The Sedins are basically robots, they just take abuse and act like nothing happens. To me that's impressive in it's own right, since they take a lot of a abuse and play through pain. I can see why it annoys people, I like players to show a little more emotion but if anything we've been hurt before when someone like Plekanec (another guy people around here call "soft" missing the point) does something stupid to retaliate.

If anything I blame Vancouver's over-dependency on their power play as much as I do the Sedins themselves, if that team isn't getting calls it just seems clueless at times.
