Laraque's gone, do we need another enforcer?
 
Do wee remplace Laraque by another tough guy? Do we bring Neilson? Do we give a try to O'Byrne as a winger? A lot of questions !

I'd give a shot to Neilson (if Neilson's right are owned by the Habs) or maybe Stewart... We need a guy like Ott, Rypien, Brown, Thornton who can play, hits, and fight in the same time.

WestIslander 01-21-2010 12:07 PM

We already have one and he is awesome!!!

Eric Neilson

He was Crosby's bodyguard in Rimouski, I don't need to say much more.

He also had 3 fights in one NHL pre-game.

HF-Addict 01-21-2010 12:08 PM

We need an enforcer just as much as needed one when we had Georges. One who does the job he is being paid for. Carcillo would be nice.

Forget Stewart.. that guy doesn't want to fight anymore. He has only 4 fights with Hamilton this season.

we need an enforcer who enforces

we need to ALSO add players who can and will engage when challanged.

we need a "wolf pack".We need a group of 3 or 4 who can huntdown the predetors/badguys.

right now we got tissue compared to sandpaper.

every year we sign small players and have 1 GUY try to defend them all.And the one guy defending isnt really able to defend as he isnt a real heavy,it just dont work .

Then we get the toughest guy in the leauge , and he goes soft.

No fault of the players ,we need to add the element of protection/and in your faceness if you mess with us .right now we dont got that and teams take advantage of it .

I like a guy like Ian Laperriere.

Eric Neilson is in no way whatsoever affiliated to the Habs aside from the fact that the Bulldogs gave him a minor league deal only. He is not under an NHL contract and technically is an NHL UFA. Considering he's been a healthy scratch in 11 of the last 21 games in the AHL, there's no way that he even warrants a contract let alone a callup.

Kevin Westgarth. Plays for LA's farm team. The guy can fight, play a wee bit, and has a cheap price tag. Please Bob if you read these threads make it happen.

Komarov47 01-21-2010 12:24 PM

**** Lappy was available last season... :shakehead Carcillo is the face of Philly's play, a gritty little ***** who can fight and score ! :laugh: So no way the Flyers would trade him. Maybe guys like Ott, Orr, McLeod. The one I like is B.J Crombeen, he can score and fight. He's not an heavyweight (6'2, 212 lbs) but he can hit for sure.

oli500 01-21-2010 12:25 PM

Neilson please. He will be happy with what ever ice we gave him. Showed that he is not afraid of anyone and unlike laraque they will fight him. He wont be a cancer to the dressing room demanding ice time

Mister Potato 01-21-2010 12:26 PM

We don't need another useless enforcer. We have Travis Moen

Bitterman 01-21-2010 12:27 PM

I'm for team toughness, not a goon who can't score and is a liability. Give me a couple Mike McPhee types to support Moen and I'd be happy.

Komarov47 01-21-2010 12:29 PM

Anyone please but not O'Byrne on the wing ! I can't even imagine that i'm saying O'byrne and wing on the same sentance !

For the 50th time, Eric Neilson is in no way whatsoever affiliated to the Habs aside from the fact that the Bulldogs gave him a minor league deal only. He is not under an NHL contract and technically is an NHL UFA.

Watsatheo 01-21-2010 12:37 PM

Only to Habs fans can an enforcer have one awesome preseason game and be remembered forever. :laugh:

LaurentHou* 01-21-2010 12:41 PM

Neilson dont win a lot of fight...

gusfring 01-21-2010 12:44 PM

I don't trust this staff to get the right guy anyways, so no.

katatoniak 01-21-2010 12:51 PM

André Roy ?

vokiel 01-21-2010 12:53 PM

The staff plainly pointed out that they don't need an enforcer, a guy that spends 3-5 minutes on the ice per game, to win. So the answer is no.

Check out his fights, not bad. We know he's not a scorer or a playmaker :)

We dont need a goon, we need a enforcer capable of play 8 minutes per game. A guy hit a lot, a real protector. A guy like colton orr.

maci4life 01-21-2010 12:55 PM

We need an enforcer that can play hockey. All opposing teams need to know that there will always be an enforcer playing every game. No team gets a break to take runs at the stars.

Georges for Georges. win.

Fozz 01-21-2010 12:59 PM

There's a ton of enforcer-type players going UFA next summer... I'm sure Gainey can get one cheaply at the deadline, if necessary.

Markowicz 01-21-2010 01:01 PM

Maybe Conboy?
