Yes, because Montreal is filled with guys ready to drop the gloves. And how badly were they hurt? Or is it the absense of a goon that caused Koivu to get cancer? After all, once team toughness is there, nothing bad can happen to your team, right?

I agree that an enforcer serves an important role to the team, providing team toughness, swaying the momentum, etc.

However, to equate a goon's presence with # of injuries is just silly, and it's getting old.
