Everyone on this team needs to gain a few pounds of muscle mass in the off season, and take a few lessons on throwing their weight around. Our lack of physicality is a complete joke. We would be perfect for a European league, but the NHL is much, much more physical. We NEED to check harder, especially on the forecheck.
I agree....I think Brodin has shown to handle the physical play quite well considering his age. But I agree that getting stronger will only improve his game and Coyle looks to be the type of player that we won't have to worry about in that department.
