I bet you got a kick out watching Desharnais being thrown to the ice. What about Gallagher and his concussion getting thrown to the ice.

Subban? You like him getting smashed into the boards by Thornton? How about when Horton shoved him into the net.....luckily avoiding the post?

You like the pounding Emelin had to take tonight?

And what about a tough and effective winger having to fight Lucic and get pounded for having a lot of heart?

Did you love all of that?

I did. Because the team stuck to their game and won.

You also act as though this team is made of glass. This is a tough, resilient team. They can take a few licks.

Unless you get rid of those small players, it's going to happen. It's the way the Bruins play. Watch them play any team, it's what they do. All the goons in the world won't stop it.

To answer the OP. The answer is no.

I'd rather have several middle-weight players who can fight, yet still play the game. We have Prust, Moen, Armstrong, Gorges, Bouillon, and White who can all play yet drop the gloves when required. You build a stronger team this way too, since multiple players can stand up, which makes it hard for the opposing to team to intimidate us.

Our team looks like a mirror image of Boston. We have depth, and skill, and multiple guys that can scrap. What we lack in size, is compensated through intensity and fearlessness.

Anyone who drafts a Tinordi in the first round isn't about softness. Let alone someone who acquired guys like Staubitz, Schultz, etc...


The inaccuracy of it just bothers me.

Do you miss Gauthier's tender voice? The longing of having a pacifist GM?

No, sorry. One acquired player at the end of last season will not change my mind. Gauthier was not a fan of toughness.

I don't see room for the three middle weights and a heavyweight on a competitive roster. Prust, a legit heavy, and one of Moen/White is enough. Especially when Tinordi replaces Boullion next year.

Gauthier inherited an incredibly soft team. In his short time here, he trade Halak for Eller and Schultz (not a soft package at all), and drafted Tinordi in the first round. That aint soft.

Lucic does not play on the fourth line. Neither does Prust.

The legit heavy only plays against the Sens, Leafs and Bruins. Rest of the time he eats popcorn upstairs.

Schultz, Tinordi. OK.

Eller. Never had a fight in the NHL.

But anyway, not the point of this thread.

We are Canadians hence we ought to be nice and get run at endless! As if Moen and Armstrong who combined for ZERO hit tonight aren't waste of roster spots anyway.

YES ****ing hell YES. We have some good scrappers but they are smaller and cant do as well with bigger, stronger guys with huge reach advantages. We need a bigger guy in there who isnt passive like Moen is.

for ****'s sake. we just beat them and this thing again? you can't fight a team like boston just by getting goons.

why you ask?

because they don't have one. you beat the bruins by not letting their ******** get to you.

i know it's hypocritical, but i've said all along that if we are to be getting a goon, the only guy i am in favor of getting if gillies.
1: i loooooove his 'stache.
2: guy's a lunatic.
3: seriously, that guy is "should be locked up" kind of crazy.

he wouldn't ask "would you like to throw down sir?", he'd just start punching. my VPN is borked but someone can go look for a video of gillies playing the KHL. guy trips the goalie on purpose, then when a guy from the other team approaches him, he starts wailing on the poor ****ing guy. it's hilarious in a terrifying way

crazy mofo

Just when MT tried taming down White from putting his team in trouble, you want the most redneck enforcer ever?

It is amazing.

They do not realize these pounding are not sustainable.

I would definitely take a good fighter/hitter we can insert into our fourth line against tougher teams. I also think we need some better scoring. Great that we have had so many games where we own the puck and get more shots. Just wish more would go in. And a d-man who makes it hell to get to our net.

They also think every Hab does hot yoga and is as flexible as PK when it comes to absorbing hits.

Wait till the playoffs where the refs let more boarding and roughing infractions go...
