Basically imagine a player who was almost as good at enforcing as Shelley, but isn't as (offensively) talented as Shelley (that's obviously a VERY relative scale). That's what we have gotten in Ryan Flinn.
I don't care if he doesn't have much of an offensive play, as long as he can hit, go into the corners and fall back well on defense I'm all for having a guy like him.

That's what I like about Laraque, he's got underrated defensive play, can hit and fight with the best of them and add in the odd goal...It doesn't make him a hall-of-famer, but it sure makes him a great asset to have on a team. Especially a team where some of your top guys are on the smallish side.
