When the Komets announce the signing of Pascal Morency tomorrow, which I fully expect them to do, will that help alleviate some of your fears about team toughness? That gives them two guys, along with Bruce Richardson, who will fight with anybody. To my thinking, that's two guys to build on and allow the Komets to take their time finding the right superheavyweight. They probably still need one more, but those are two very good pieces to start which who can both play a regular shift as well. I think they are probably still looking for a big, bruising defenseman and an extra forward type. If they can do that, it would give them a very nice balance of toughness and skill.
I'm not so much concerned about the size factor either because I don't see any other teams that are that big, either right now. Looks to me like this team will have some flexibility as regards to style of play.
