They have tons of those guys, you need a balance, would 12 Patrick Kanes work as a forward core? Or 12 Toews or any player? Sure it's great to have some good skating puck moving D-men, but you always need to balance that out with some stay at home D-men with some size or who can use their body. That Kassian goal the other night is a perfect example, he just shoves Keith out his way and Hammer bounces off him as he scores an easy goal. It would be nice to have someone who can handle that type of player out there.
