All joking aside, if they make the playoffs the Isles would be better off with Webb in the lineup than Godard a majority of the time. Fighting (except for Isles/Leafs :p ) is rare, especially outside of the first few games of the first round. Webb, as limited as he is skill-wise, can change the complexion of a game simply with one 30 second shift (and a couple of bodychecks). Godard cannot.

He can bring life back to a team that sometimes lacks it. And yes, you want players like that on your fourth line rather than waif-like "prospects" like Papineau, Mapletoft and even Weinhandl, come post-season.
Glad to see Steve Webb back...but unfortunately Stirling will have no clue how to use him and he will have him riding the pine for the most part. That's too bad really!!
