Brodeur, Neidermayer, Stevens, Daneyko, Rafalski, etc. Not to mention some very talented offensive players in their prime. They were stacked.
Thank you. All those Cup teams were loaded with talent and grit.

This current roster is going to get its lunch money stolen when the games start getting physical. We dont have the personnel to do all the dirty work in the trenches.

Something is going to have to change because running a system that requires a lot of digging in the corners and behind the net is not going to work with the guys we have. Parise and Clarkson were the reason it worked so well with the top lines. Like I said, teams like the Bruins are going to eat us for breakfast because we're outmatched in size, strength and skating ability and trying to play a style that requires either those traits or a really gritty player.
