It should be kept in mind as well that their 4th line (Gionta, Bernier, Carter)--a physical line just destroyed us as did Boston's 4th line (Campbell, Paille, Thornton) last year. You need skill but skill is not enough on its own. Your lesser players can't be passengers. The more they contribute the better your chances.
Exception, not the rule. Their forecheck was ridiculous. they played less games than us as well, more scoring chances. Kings, Chitown. Their entire team is talent. With some man power too. You guys blow toughness way out of proportion. Team needs to be complete. The toughness thing here is a bad joke.

So you guys are saying you don't want Chris Neil ?
You make a joke out of yourself again. Those teams were LOADED with talent, I never said no grit. Read before you ****ing post. Stop being ignorant. You call everyone out but then you act like a child and cherrypick. Chris Neil is a good player. He can do more than just TOFFNOSS, as you obsessed crazed people who overvalue it say.
