I see this hasn't been mentioned yet,but one of the big reasons Stoner was kept over Falk is his toughness. Yes Stoner is a marginal defender and brings no offense but he has the ability to drop the gloves and add grit. Falk is a big kid and yeah he can hit but for being 6'5 he doesn't hit nearly enough or really use his body all that well and im sure those will be focus points of his Houston trip. Im sure we will all appreciate Stoner a lot more on Saturday when he pummels Sean Avery for running Koivu and Havlat and probably Backstrom all game.
