I'm a big toughness and fighting guy. But absolutely not, you don't win the Cup by fighting guys like Bickell and Shaw. You win the Cup laughing at those 2 dummies continue to screw their team by taking dumb penalties. Keep composed, and this series will be over quick.
As much as I hate to see Helm out, his absence has given Andersson a chance to show he's a capable center at the NHL level. I appreciate the effort Emmerton puts forth, but I think Dats/Flip/Andersson/Helm gives us much better depth at center. One positive to take out of it.
We need a reality check. Get rid of some floaters and free agent mistakes and get players about to reach their prime, with heart, grit, and who can stay healthy. I would rather not limit this to free agents, make some trades, get creative, not just checking names off a list.
