I'd say Buffalo kind of does. In the first round those guys are huge to have

Same here on both accounts. McLaren is young and better than Orr, so he'll be staying, but that was a major wow from Prust. Guy needs some help. He can't be fighting the entire league because the rest of our team is one giant *****.

If he was bigger and could play the game like he can, he would have gotten more than 2.5

They gave up on Richards a long time ago.

Clowe isn't a guy to score goals, he's there to be physical, win fights and occasionally get a goal. He's a bottom 6 forward and the rangers got him to be a top 6 forward.
