From the outside looking in MTL needs size and toughness. Not a goon, but at least one D man with size who can be reckoned with in your own end and a forward who can exchange hits with the best of them and still take a regular shift. You've got skill and scoring ability, which is the toughest thing to find, IMO, but you are getting bullied.

Another thread mentioned a possible trade for Clayton Stoner who plays D for my team, the Wild. By no means a great D man, but can take a regular shift. Big and strong enough to jostle with the big boys in front of the net, and can fight if it comes down to it.

A few other guys on the Wild who are somewhat gettable and would provide some of the above qualities.
- Clutterbuck
- hits anything that moves, fast, has an OK shot, plays PK. Will not back down, and can fight in a pinch.

Brodziak
- Big, tough, can play. Is used on PP occasionally to provide a screen in front of net. Was one of our best players last year, somewhat dissappointing this year. Might be hard to acquire.

Heatley
- he's big. He makes 7.5 M. He's yours.

Kenopka

- fighter, but a fighter who can take a regular 4th line shift due to his superb FO skills.

I think all of these players, or players like these, would help your team.
