Honestly, I'm not a fan of either (Brookbank or McKenzie). I'm just not a big fan of no talented big "enforcers" that only fight other big "enforcers."
I like Stevenson has a middle weight. Alteast some non-enforcers will go with him (ie McCarty, Barnaby, Staios, Moreau). Tootoo, imo, is one of the most effective fighers in the league. A guy like Brookbank or McKenzie would never in a million years get Iginla to go with him. Tootoo pissed the crap out of him and went with him (and took their MVP out of the game for 5 mintues). Walker is extremely effective when he fights. He gets the non-enforcers to go with him and he usually kicks the crap out of them. I don't *like* for him to fight, because of the risk of injury and losing one of our best players for 5 minutes. Zidlicky getting Nash to go was pretty awesome too.
McKenzie is OK. Atleast he's not a huge liability out there. But I don't think his fighting has been a difference maker for us this year.
