we do have one now but think of the injuries we suffered and the losses we suffered this past season due to this lack of presence
I think you're forgetting he picked up Murray to serve as an enforcer back in November - not Martin's fault the guy lasted 7 games. Thing is, JM was trying to get someone that would be serviceable on the ice, not cost too much, and be adequate to get the job done.

Ultimately we got Belak, so as Meatloaf said, "two out of three ain't bad".
