There would be no reason for Hanisey to ever be scratched IMO.

Boro is a different story

To play devil's advocate, it's a pretty soft defence without Boro in their though.

To play devil's advocate some more.

Top five teams - hits per game:

1. Pittsburgh
2. Vegas
3. Montreal
4. Edmonton
5. New York Rangers

(two playoff teams)

Bottom five teams - hits per game:

27. Buffalo
28. Nashville
29. Toronto
30. Chicago
31. Calgary

(three playoff teams)

Other stats:

- Ottawa (worst team in the league) finished 19th. Winnipeg, Dallas, Vancouver ahead of them. Philly, Detroit, Columbus right behind.
- St. Louis finished 24th. Boston finished 15th. Difference of three hits per game
- Pitt avg. of 28.8 hpg vs Calgary avg. of 15
- Boston, Tampa, Winnipeg, Colorado, NYR had the most PIMs per game. (4 playoff teams)
- Vegas, Arizona, Buffalo, Columbus, Toronto had the least PIMs per game. (3 playoff teams)

I think 'toughness' is overrated. Maybe 'timely' toughness is something more representative but I don't think hits or playing a 'dirty' game really matter.

Ergo, Boro is unnecessary.

I think Christian jaros is more than capable to replace that and is a more productive player

Absolutely. More mobile, more effective, more everything.

Toughness doesn't help you get to the playoffs.
Toughness helps you get *through* the playoffs.

It's quite simple, actually. You hit someone really hard on the regular season and maybe even injure them, that helps out the next team your opponent is playing.

In the playoffs you get 4-7 games against the same opponent. Even if you don't knock a guy out in the first game you soften him up, make him less eager to go into the corners, etc.

Rough play is much more relevant in the post season. Especially in the later rounds when players lose a step and are easier to catch.

Unlike the look of the pageau duclair and Batherson line could be a fast good line

Hmm, interesting. I would like batherson with the most talented c, but that could work

Thing is, their most talented center might be playing in Belleville to start the year, and the next one for the line does not have Pageau's experience in the league.

This is a player that we will regret not taking when we had ample opportunity.

So the guy lost his s*it with 10 minutes to go in the game. Do you have something else?

Holy cow, formenton grew an inch to 6 3, but he gained 25 pounds since last training camp to 190.

Batherson at 21 grew an inch, which is strange

Abramov, Norris and formenton are apparently of the best lines right now. Abramov making a case to be a call up. Good for him!
