It's not really the fighting though, its a question of overall size and grit. I appreciate that Chara is getting older but now they've replace him with another tower. The road to the cup will go through Boston and I think we've got to be shore up the size on this team.

I know it's only one loss. But sometimes getting creamed provides you with the benefit of examining your weaknesses. I know that we're not going to lose every game like we did yesterday but last night definitely exposed a weakness that we have going forward. I think it's a weakness that should actually be addressed.
