Why? Those above mentioned teams can play the goonish game against us because they know they can.
We need an average skilled heavy to dress specifically against those teams. The rest of the te he can entertain Kaberle in the press box.
I hope Bergevin is noticing who we are losing to and understand why so he can fix the problem.
Do we really struggle? I remember not that long ago when we had a much softer team we went 8-0 against the Bruins and 6-0 against the Flyers in the regular season.
Toughness doesn't win hockey games. The only reason to get a tough guy is if there are players playing scared. Then it might help them get back on their game. But I don't see anyone playing scared on the habs.
