we got plenty of size and grit. you add some skill, speed, smarts that come in smaller sizes (condra, petersson, prince, jgp, amongst others) and you got a good mix for a winner.
Whats a little funny here is that I don't like any of the players you have suggested we add to the lineup.
I think Petersson is destined to play in Europe, Condra to be traded, JGP to be a career minor leaguer & Prince could be the one guy that could play somewhere in the NHL, just not Ottawa. I prefer Noesen, Puempel, Stone, Grant, Ceci, Maidens & Hoffman.
While Neil has the heart of a lion & will fight anyone IMO he is out of his league (size wise) when he fights guys like Orr, Engelland, Lucic & Smith is a midleweight at best. Would we really miss Daugavins if we used his roster spot for a heavyweight enforcer? I don't think so. But I would prefer a young big tough guy who can also play every shift like a Tom Wilson & we may have one in Sdao, we'll see I guess. Chara & Lucic are perfect examples of heavyweights who can play, McQuaid is pretty tough young guy too, Boston has a pretty tough roster.
