classy guy but not sure he's the "oomph" we need on the roster.
Many here mention Ryder far too often when talking about "needs", I`ve bit my lip for far too long but truth is, has this team replaced what Rex could bring?? And I`m not necessarily talking about the leadership aspect as I think this team has lots of that.

I`m speaking specifically about players who`ll take the abuse that Rex, at his age, willingly subjected himself to for the better of the team nightly. I don`t see it, I see lots of Bruins stand in front of the net, but not in front of the goalie, huge difference and THAT, is what made Rex so valuable. You don`t have to be huge to be effective in front as Rex and many others have shown us, how about Chia go out and get a guy who`s willing to take that abuse you mentioned??
