I see what you are saying, and I somewhat agree with ya. But the main issue with BGL here is that he DID NOT regulate at times when he had the opportunity. And again I agree with ya in the fact that I do think since he is the "new guy" he will want to show his might, but the key part in your sentence there is "for a little while." In my opinion he will make a splash, but then he will get comfortable and let his hockey skills take over, forgetting his enforcer duties. And that is if we take the past into account. But hey good luck, I always liked him but that is not to say he did not have his faults.
