It's not even about being Euro. Just in general, our team lacks grit and toughness and engenuity in how to score. We don't have bangers or people to screen the goalies, we dont have someone to lay people out or to protect Jagr and those types of players. We lack a lot of Hockey fundamentals and elements to succeed. Hopefully I believe we have these things in the minors but we still need a real enforcer and a real power forward that can do the dirty work and push in the garbage goals that we never seem to get. It's not just the Euros, we are soft in general, Hollweg is a soft toughguy, he just doesnt have what it takes. Blair Betts, Dupuis, and Cullen are all soft too. The only tough guy we have on the team is Aaron Ward and Maybe Tyutin when he feels like being physical. Other than that NOTHING. Mighty little Sean Avery is a firebug but he isnt enough.
