Babs line earlier in the year about wanting to be the toughest team, but not being built that way and the way he applauded Bertuzzi for fighting Weber make me believe he'd be a hell of a coach if he had more compete and more physical presence. Babs isn't the problem, but Holland and Nill might be. This off-season will be the biggest since 06-07, Holland delivered that year by getting Rafalski and Drake. Lets see what he does this time around.
I agree. We need to trim the fat and get some new hungry faces that play with grit. And can our fourth line actually be an energy line, please?
For reference, my memory of the summer of '07 through '08:
- Lost: Lang, Calder, Bertuzzi, Schneider, Markov, Williams
- Added: Rafalski, Drake, McCarty (mid-season), Stuart (deadline)
