No excuse for not using guys like Kadri more...not playing Gardiner or Liles over AHL plugs and icing McLaren and Orr far far too much. Even idiots can see this..why cant a saavy coach like the Cup Ring holder?
They are not mutually exclusive. You can have both. You can have toughness and finess. I don't see why you need to Kostka, he's not tough at all. Gardiner or Liles gives you some finess.
The 4th line is a good line but you don't have to play them the amount you do. Maclaren / Orr doesn't need to dress every game, only games where we have tough opponents.
The resources are poorly managed in my opinion.
