We also have Rahimi and FitzGerald on the Moose.
How many fighters does this team need?
Bieksa and Pyatt, and Kesler can fight to different skill levels, but shouldn't.
Hordichuk is a heavy weight who couldn't get anyone to fight him in the preseason. Davison is a defensemen, and if he's dressed, you don't really want to have him sitting in the box for 5 minutes or risk him getting injured.
So basically, Rypien is the only guy on the active roster who can drop them at any moment with few repercussions. Not a huge problem with that, unless he gets injured.
