Poster boys for this teams problems are Hemsky, Belanger, Whitney, Potter.... Horcoff, at least looks like he's trying. The others are soft and very easy to play against. Regardless of whether you're on the ice 15 minutes or 7 minutes we don't make the opponents work for the puck. I think instead of getting rid of Horcoff, you get him some help.... ie try to pluck guys from winning clubs... young-ish veterans like Vermette had success in Ottawa and Phoenix, Filpulla in Detroit, Bolland & Stallberg in Chicago, Boyd Gordon, Talbot in Phi & Pitts. Add players like that. On the back end guys like Roszival, Hjallmarsson, Boyle, Zdlicky, Ference, Girardi.....
let's increase the leadership, and not throw what little we have away.
