I really would love to see McIlrath on this team right now. That said he won't change the scoring problem of the O and the softy problem of Lundqvist.
I just see it as one area in which the team is deficient. I also think the are deficient when it comes to face-off specialists. (Boyle's the only really go to guy here). It seems like the teams the go the farthest or have had the most success lately have a large line-up. Part of the reason the season opening was so disasterous, was simply that we played bigger teams. Physicality is part of the game. I know it's not the only piece. I would just like to have a guy like Prust (back in NYR), or a Kessler from Van, or even a Martin/Clutterbuck from the Isles. I think even a guy like Clarkson would have been a good addition this past summer. He's gritty and would be an excellent complimentary player for the finesse passing Richards...I liked the majority of the players on your list of keepers, especially 1-5.
