I am sure either guy would get picked up, so the other alternative is to develop them into every day players, or try to.
Peat went back to Portland twice last season. I see no reason why one of those two couldn't be sent to the AHL. By the way. How often do you think Peat or Henry fight anyway? In a combined 68 games Henry and Peat had 17 major penalties last year. about one fight for every 3.5 games. 82 games....17 major penalties.
