I propose that a Shootout Specialist is worth more to a team than a Goon

Prust is the only guy on the team who can fight, but we have him fighting guys 4-6 taller than him and 30-50 heavier....that can't last.
figthing doesn't win hockey games...but protecting your star players does...the Rangers have to incorporate more size and grit into their lineup if they truly want to make a run at the cup.
Boogard is on this team for the next 3 years...most of you don't like it but we might as well try to make it work...limit him to the games were it is a must to have him in the lineup and bring in Ryan Clowe...maybe both of our 2nd round picks would entice San Jose, that man is a absolute beast and he would go a very long way into protecting the people on our team that need to be protected.
The Sauer's of the league scare players a lot more than the Boogaard's of the league. You really think a guy that can be outskated by some of the people on this message board bothers anyone in the new NHL? Even if he catches up to anyone to do anything, it's not like Boogaard has a lot of options if a guy doesn't want to fight or is out of his weight class (which is most of the league).
For all we know Boogaard is as good as retired...on this team for 3 years.
