It's a physical game and we got pummeled by the Bruins for two years. The Jacques Martin era is seared into my retinas.

When you have one short, non-physical player - that's one thing. When you sign one for five years and give him the captaincy, extend another for four years mid-season where he's playing poorly and extend another till age 38 who happens to play next to PK fn Subban - something is amiss.

It's a physical game, it's a game of speed and strength and talent. Martin St Louis doesn't play like a midget and he doesn't produce like one either. Gallagher seems to kick ass, though he's still a rookie and we don't know what he's going to play like as he develops. DD and Gionta are non-physical short players on a team that was infamous for the better part of three years for having non-physical short players and diving their way to victory. I'm sick of that image and that culture, Clowe would be a welcome change if he comes cheap and plays on third line if Bourque ends up injured for a long time.
