As far as dropping the gloves is concerned, Stoner may have more of a reputation but I don't think Stoner can be said to be tougher. There is nothing that I have seen thus far, from the beginning of camp until now, that indicates Stoner is the superior physical player.

In other words, I don't think toughness had anything to do with the decision of Falk vs. Stoner...just contract/waiver situation.
Actually Richards was quoted as saying that.When asked why Falk was chosen over other defenseman, Richards said the following: [Clayton] Stoner has a little bit different element than Falk does, with the toughness and the grit, so sometimes that leads into the decisions, too.
