I think a lot will credit team toughness for why Boston beat the Canucks in the finals. We need to get tougher. We need to hit more. We need Tallon to make some changes. Assuming Goc is back, there isn't much room on the bottom lines unless someone gets traded. Matthias is a lock, Parros is signed for another year (I guess he could get traded), Skille(Tallon's boy), if Howden keeps playing like he did last night he's going to get a spot, Upshall has to get bought out, Bergie is physical enough. Kopecky isn't going anywhere.
LIkeliehood of returning
I could see Goc getting traded, Upshall being bought out, Bergie is a bit of a wild card, and Parros will be a somewhat regular scratch although I'd love to trade him. So I guess we will have room. Pretty long posts, sorry if you read this.
Howden had a nice game. And I agree about the lack of toughness. That's why I'm always wanting a guy like Stewart, Clarkson, etc. I mean I'd really like it if someone could have gone after Kostopoulos for those punches on Robak. Ugh, oh well.
