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

In the end a goon will only fight other goons and not intimidate anybody else. Maybe with his size, but due to his incredibly slow skating his hitting isn't really efficient either...
If a guy runs your star player he has to know that someone on that team is going to come calling for you...Benoit Pouliot would beat up everyone on our team except Prust.
Patrice Bergeron can drop his shoulder into Hanks chin because he knows if someone messes with him, they have to answer to Lucic and the boys...you can pretend that does happen in hockey but it does.
Chara almost kills the Canadian kid and next game they destroy the Habs...because the Habs have no answers for their size.
I love the Rangers make up...but I think they need to incorporate more bruisers.
