Lucic and Horton can't grind it every game at 100%, even to 4th line who's there just for that can't to it every game. It's just too taxing on the body and with age, money, security, etc. players tend to be less agressive, it's totally human.

Speed is never a bad idea, but first and for most they need a guy with legitimate top 6 skills imo.
Everything was fine?

Krejci 40gp 10g 21a 31pts
Satan 38gp 9g 5a 14pts
Lucic 40gp 7g 8a 15pts

That's those three players stat lines in the regular season once Satan was acquired. Doesn't really look fine.

Sure Satan and Krejci looked pretty good in the Buffalo series mind you, but that's a 6 game sample size and most players tend to get up for matches against their former team. Lucic actually performed better that year after Krejci went down against Philly. I don't believe he scored a goal up until that point in that post season, then scored 5 goals in 6 games.
