Agreed that we need Kassian to have a breakout season.
He's only 22 though so it might be a tad early.
What we REALLY need is to bring in some more assholes through trades or as UFAs.
When you have two weenies in your top 6 (Sedins) and two agitators in your top 6 (Kess + Burr)
.... you NEED those other two top 6 guys to be assholes!
And of course, as we both know, our dee needs to become more assholish.
Gillis has TRIED to make this team more assholish... and failed.
This summer may very well be his last chance.
Well, I dearly would love Clarkson but he apparently wants to go back home to Ontario to the Leafs. Simmonds would be nice as he is tough as nails but no way Philly is trading him. There just isn't a lot of those types of players out there. And with the way the Bruins are setting the tone of the game now, those types of players are going to be real hard to come by.
The bottom line is, I don't want no Parros, Hordichuk type playing 2 minutes a game on the fourth line only to partake in staged fights with the other teams goon. A complete waste of time and not what we need. We need more big bodies who can crash and bang, skate like the wind, and come with skill. They don't necessarily have to fight and be undisciplined lunatics out there taxing your PK unit all game like slow as a moose Ryan Clowe.
