I thought they got that with the acquisition of Dorsett? If they wanted more toughness and abrasiveness, they should've held onto Mike Rupp.



Babcock plays his best players. For years, he's put Todd Bertuzzi on the first line with Datsyuk, even in the playoffs.
Tootoo had 8 points in 42 games this season playing ~9 minutes a night.

Pyatt had 11 playing 48 games playing ~13 minutes a night.

He is aggressive, that is true. A player in his role is supposed to be.

Rupp can't skate. HUGE difference, and I'm sure you knew that before posting that.

Bertuzzi, for years, has had legit top-6 talent. He is not just some goon. Tootoo is not Bertuzzi.
