There are plenty of players that we can pick up next year that will make us tougher to play against.
There is plenty of players that Holland can go out and replace Bert, Hudler, Miller, Emmerton and Holstrom etc. We need a change of 4th line. Usually 4th lines are big gritty guys that go out and crash and bang. We have a bunch of small soft guys that get manhandled like crazy.
You must be going for the record on minuses for one post (I think that stinky fish guy holds the current record).
That being said, while I don't think the Wings are necessarily soft I do think they could use more snarl. They would benefit from more intimidating physical players in the lineup, especially on the bottom lines where there's more players of that kind available. And to be clear I'm not talking about goons.
No thank you to Avery and Carcillo, but there are guys out there. I also wouldn't include Homer in your list of players to replace. He's getting long in the tooth but he's shown he still has value and his been one of the better Wings so far this season.
