Not completely sure on that one when it came to the regular season. They did however prove it in the playoffs... but having an enforcer is probably on the bottom of priorities for the playoffs, IMO.

For a long season with many games being pointless for underacheiving teams (especially down the stretch), having an enforcer on the ice will cut down on a lot of the crap, making it easier for our skilled players to stay out of trouble and out of the penalty box.

Even looking back to the Ottawa game (the dreaded Volchenkov hit on Gagne), had Gagne had a real enforcer waiting on the bench, maybe he would have thought twice about attacking Volchenkov immediately after the hit on him.
