"“We are all in alignment. We want to keep our Penguins DNA. High speed, highly skilled hockey. But I do think we need to get bigger and tougher. And guys that can play Penguins hockey that are big and ugly are hard to find. But there is no question in my mind that we need to get bigger.”

"But bringing Jeff Carter in and having a deep team, a hardworking team, a skilled team, a fast team … would we like to add a little bit of size? Of course we’d like to add some size and toughness. There’s not a lot out there. We’ll make adjustments. But if we go into next season with this group, we’re comfortable with that.

“There’s just not a lot of it (size and toughness) around anymore. The standard for a player to be able to play in your top 12 forwards has gone way up. There’s not a lot of guys that have enough skill, skate well enough and that bring that other element. There’s not a lot of it around. It is in demand. Teams that have those top guys aren’t going to part with it. If we can find it and the price is reasonable, we’ll certainly do it. But we’re comfortable with our team. We had a real good regular season and played well in the playoffs. That doesn’t mean we won’t look to get better. We will.”


This is the thought of the team. You have to be able to skate. It's not a debate. They would rather have guys who can move than a big guy who's a pylon.
