Yea lets soften us up even more.
Rypien is a light heavyweight, he can't take on the true goons. Taking on these kinds of guys leaves Rypien even more vulnerable to the inevitable injury. We tried it with Cowan. It was embarrassing. This is the west. Did people suddenly forget that alot of the teams we play against have idiots who like to take runs, etc?
Hordichuk is undervalued for what he brings. He is easily one of the best skating goons out there, and doesn't typically take dumb penalties. He is also fairly intimidating and has a good reputation around the league.
These kinds of guys are good for a team.
In addition, its also very easy to simply scratch Hordichuk if we are playing a soft team. Playing him 40-55 games won't hurt the team financially or on the ice, imo.
