If you don't have someone on that line who will throw their weight around and protect them if necessary, then you can expect to see one or both on the IR for a long time this season. Powe is not that guy.
This is a silly flyers mentality. These guys are professional hockey players. They don't need a big daddy looking over their shoulder to make sure they are ok. You have to remember that these guys will probably have Pronger back on the blue-line too. Powe drops the gloves too and is a hard little bstard. They just need the puck. They create their own space and giroux is going to give JVR at least 20 goals this season, and probably 10-15 to powe minimum. I said it here first.
I have no problem with powe warming the spot for maroon either. I really believe that maroon can be a damn good player in this league. Very much a knuble player.
