Of course but the reality is, that we've heard the "team toughness" line many, many times before and still managed to get manhandled and embarrassed every season in pivotal encounters.

If we had a big team, Briere would've been a better pickup. But we don't. We have a perimeter team and he's another player in love with the side boards. And another rat agitator who can't defend himself.

No wonder most fans are upset at the signing.
