Boog is not keeping us from winning the Stanley Cup; he's providing some protection while the rest of the team goes about that pursuit without having to constantly worry about who's going to defend them. It's always nice to have the toughest father on the block.
On the ice or not, Boog's name in the lineup serves a purpose
And yet, quite often the coach keeps him out of the lineup. Tells you something...
