I think some people need to open their eyes. This team is marshmallow soft atm.
Way too many skill players/Euro types and absolutely no one to look out for them. Sestito/Rinaldo will just be punching bags for true heavies thus staying with the theme of the past 4 or 5 seasons. Hey but they're game to go right boys?
Well maybe that's enough for you but you can keep the moral victories, I want someone that can actually win a fight or at least make someone think twice about taking a cheapie.
Shelley doesn't really play and even if he does he can't keep up with any of the real big dogs in the NHL atm. I love the guy but he's a complete waste of space at his age/ability level in the current NHL.
Other teams loading up on toughness we're signing ****ing Bruno Gervais
and Fedotenko for chrissakes.
Giroux is highly competitive and with the game he plays he needs someone to make sure liberties aren't taken. With all these young guys there needs to be
way more grit/leadership and honestly there is absolutely no one.
When you have coaches saying G is one of the best players in the world yet you don't get him a first class bodyguard it's not acceptable because I can guarantee you there isn't single heavy in the league who doesn't look at Sestito/Rinaldo (and Shelley for that matter
) and lick his chops.
You'd think after what happened last year Homer would be working furiously to get some protection for players who are the future of the franchise. I see it getting bad this year.
