I don't really want to start the argument again, but the quality of Simon's job as "enforcer" is highly debateable. He was good for getting into a scrum, but who isn't? When it came time to throw down, Barnaby was the guy doing the dirty work too often. Matty shouldn't have to fight Brashear when there's a supposed "enforcer" on the team.

Personally though, I liked the way Simon was used. He got minutes, skated with quality linemates and chipped in a good amount of offense. Use McCarthy in the same manner and I think everyone would be pleasantly surprised.
