Basically I'm on board with getting another tough guy but I want him to be able to play and not just be a ball and chain for his other linemates. We don't have to get the nastiest--most feared guy if he's not good enough to play. Of those going into free agency Rupp seems the best option--maybe not the best fighter. I'm not that impressed with Koci, Godard, McIntyre or Janssens as players. Boulton I'm more leery of because he's getting older. Rypien too small and dealing with personal issues.
And if we're going to add muscle on defense prefer Vandermeer over O'Brien--who I don't think is a very good fighter. There's a no nonsense aspect to Vandermeer's game. Carkner as it happens is signed for another year.
One interesting thing about Konopka--not a great player and a bit over his head in a lot of fights he gets in--but he's a very good faceoff guy.
