MacIntrye suffers from the Laraque syndrome, fight only the other teams tough guy.

Jacques rarely fights and one game in 10 looks good by being physical all the time.

Fraser does nothing at all.
What other teams carry around a useless player like Stortini. Other players tough guys only beat on him because they find him annoying, how does that help the team.

If you honestly believe that other players skate around thinking I need to hit someone on this shift and pick Stortini on purpose you are very wrong. Other players laugh at him and skate away more often than they take penalties and actually get annoyed by him. Guys like Avery and Carcillo are hated and do their job well.
