Zolniercyzk, Vitale, Glass, and somewhat Adams are all guys that basically make their careers on grit and physicality.

They're definitely not scorers or playmakers. Not sure what games you watch, but the above mentioned make their living solely on physical play and grit.

This team is plenty physical. Besides, wasn't Chicago nearly last in hits last year?


Agreed. But the east is a much more physical/fighting conference during the regular season then the west. Shero knows he needs to add grit. I expect the Niskanen move will address this sooner then later...

Niskanen or Orpik move. Many would be happy to see Orpik moved, but I'd like to see him retire a Penguin.

Man, I would have liked Clutterbuck.
