Taking out Westgarth, Nolan, Mitchell and Greene and replacing them with Toffoli, Muzzin and Ellerby does not bring that back.
You equate toughness with fighting, and it's really tired at this point. The Kings ice three of the top 20 in hits this season in Clifford, Brown, and Doughty, and we have continued to play a physical game even with Mitchell and Greene out. As for Westgarth, I have no idea why you keep bringing him up, Sutter wouldn't be playing him even if he was here. He's a one dimensional goon, let it go Johnny
