I hate it when people say Lapierre shouldn't fight because it's not his role. Whose role is it then? Kovalev's? Kostitsyn's? Plekanec's? These guys don't have to fight because they have skill and thus a almost certain place on the team.

Lapierre though can be easily replaced by someone who has hockey sense and who can pass the puck. He's a 6' 2" 207 pounds 4th line player with 30 fights experience. He fought in the juniors, he can do it in the NHL too. I don't expect him to fight 20 times but 7-8 times would be fine.
