I'm not saying we need a 4th liner to go out and punch ppl in the head. I'm saying we need more size on out top 6. Sedins and Burr are all soft. There is no toughness on out 1st line. We've tried this recipe before and failed. We need a power forward for the Sedins to play with, Kassian is not ready yet except the odd shift. Kassian should be on 3rd or 4th line, Booth Kesler and a play maker on the 2nd would be good.
That and a Right shooting, big body, crease clearing Dman. Not a super star cause everyone wants one of those and it's highly unlikely we get one. I'm thinking someone like Grossman, Philly paid a 2nd rounder for him if I recall correctly.
Burrows and the Sedins have been fine, in the playoffs they continue to produce for us. They aren't the problem.
We have plenty of size.
Kesler is big, Booth is big, and strong and powerful, Kassian is huge and is capable of being a top 6 forward, Higgins brings grit, The Sedins are tough, they battle through checks and always produce, Burrows has decent size, is gritty and doesn't back down. Raymond isn't as soft as people think, and his speed makes up for his lack of natural grit.
I just don't see that issue. It isn't why we lost, infact we won those battles tonight.
