We don't NEED the "roles" that Boulton/Janssen bring to the table tbh. They shouldn't be NHL players, Janssen especially. I'm not saying I miss Rolston that much, but I think we'd be a stronger team with him then without him. Obviously his cap hit was horrible..
I guess the Boston GM & coach must be complete retards. Oh wait.
One, yes you do need guys who can fight and protect your stars. Do you recall the end of the Philly game when the Devils went up 6-0 and Philly began gooning it up? You don't want Clarkson or Kovalchuk in the box for 5 minutes with the way they are scoring this year.
Two, I never said the Boston GM was a 'retard'. Nice hyperbole. The Devils are not the Bruins. They are different teams with different pieces and chemistry. Rolston may fit a need that Boston has, but he doesn't really fit one the Devils have.
