I really don't know what Murray was thinking with having Karlson, Gonchar, Runblad and Lee all on the same team. Phillips is a big body but fairly soft. Kuba is another big body and even softer. Carkner is injured and slow when healthy but at least he can intimidate the opponent. Luckily we have Cowan who is an up and comer. I know this sounds absurd and I don't even really like the player, but why not try to trade Gonchar to the Leafs for Komi or look to trade one bad contract for another by obtaining a hard nosed defensive defenseman for one of our softer dmen. I think it is a no brainer. We need more muscle and toughness on our defense. Our team really still does not have an identity. End of story.
