I agree. Kenny did a great job filling that need. Problem is, we have more then one need. We have a ton of assets, ton of cap space, and don't have a ton of scoring depth or grit on the bottom lines. Obviously we miss Datsyuk, but if we rely so heavily on one guy to spark the offense and the PP, we're in trouble. Likewise we don't have a strong 4th line center or much grit/big bodied players. Those types are available, like I said, time to make deals. I don't care what anyone feels, if Holland stands pat up front, I think it's a mistake.
Past few days everyone is bringing up the scoring depth, which I simply do not get.
We have one of the highest scoring teams in the league and have TEN players with ten or more goals. We get a lot more scoring from the bottom two lines than most other teams get from their 3rd and 4th lines. That is the definition of scoring depth.
What we need is not depth scoring, it is high end scoring. It is a top 6 scorer that would help this team, and those players simply aren't available this TDL.
