My argument is solely about Westgarth. If it is Ponikarovsky that supplants him in the line up, great. I'd even take Peter Harrold at forward before him. They need to win games, not intimidate (if that is even going on).
Then we really agree. Because I don't see him needed in every game, either. In fact, I see him as a liability against some teams. I just don't see the need to toss him OFF the team, especially in exchange for another different kind of fourth line role player, and expect Clifford or Simmonds to cover his place.
Intimidation, on the other hand, has a place in this game, even today.
