I'm not saying you're wrong...just clarifying. You may be right...but it seems to me that AM and DT are betting that "team toughness" and having tough guys who aren't pylons will pay off in the "new NHL." If obstruction is called, I think they'll be right...if not, they need to have a legit tough guy...not a pylon who's a liability but a guy who can fight AND play. I'm not so sure Cowan isn't that guy but I haven't seen enough of him to know for sure.
Parker is most definately a pylon, but Fedoruk can actually skate. I agree with the team toughness issue, but I don't really think that our team is tough enough.
