Gorges should be a third pairing guy , excluding the kids for now the rest I don't want on this team
upfront size and grit is a major issue
Pleks and Max are fine but not winners come playoff time , Pleks has never elevated his game when it counts
so its the kid line and questions everywhere
look at Chicago , their role players were Oduya, Rosival , Shaw, Bolland , Kruger , Frolik , Bickel , etc to go with a top 5 player in Towes , a top 10 winger in Kane , a top D man in Keith and a true shut down D in Seebrook
sorry to burst our bubble we don't have that to go with our core , we are still trying to establish a legit core
we are a decent team but contenders we are not ...not yet
Max and Pleks need the right complement of players too. We haven't seen that yet.
The thing that hurts is that Bergevin signed Briere and Desharnais and kept Gionta. So our problems are compounded up front. I don't think he envisioned the Gallys being ready so soon (if they are).
