We have a strong defence top to bottom. Replacing any of these guys is a mistake, they mean too much in the locker room. Along with Saku, Souray and Rivet are some of the most respected vets in the league.
Komisreak didn't lose 5 lbs, he gained like 10.
You're right, he did gain a few lbs. I stand corrected. But he also gained a gear and that is invaluable today.
I am stuck a little on the leadership issue. However, I think a leader must lead where the game is played, which is on the ice. If Rivet is deemd to slow to be effective, (again, I'm not saying he's terrible but just slow), then I don't know how much better off we are because of his locker room leadership. But it is a problem, I agree.
