I agree this team needs to add a bit of an edge to their game. Dorsett did a good job last night against Washington but it was evident last night that players like Brouwer, Laich, Wilson, Ovechkin could easily effect a longer series by wearing down opponents.

That's the key to any team. How do you wear down opponents over a series. Detroit does it by making the other team chase when they have the puck. Chicago does it by utilizing their skill and speed to beat teams to the pucks and make them play faster than they want to. Boston grinds teams down using their size along the boards.

What do the Rangers do? I would say that with the players they have, it would be easier to add a couple of pieces to become a Bruins-like team than try to become the Hawks or Wings
