That's why you and I will always disagree on this subject.

ENFORCERS ARE THERE TO POLICE THE GAME. Your best players should always have protection. Avery is not there to protect, he's there to agitate. Our star players have mostly been European (more finesse game), and last I checked besides Nazarov and Oliwa, there is not many out there that can score and fight. If we had a Guerin, Shanahan, Nolan, Iginla, Allison....those types than I wouldn't be moaning about the enforcer card that much. But we're soft when it comes to a true heavyweight. Cowan is tough as nails and he'll take on true heavyweights, but he's really not in that weight class.
