Because just the idea of 'team toughness' is ********.

The point in any case is to get a guy who 1. at least approaches being a heavyweight 2. who can actually play and 3. is not going to cost a lot in terms of cap space.
Examples around the league--Lucic, Carkner, Neil, Rupp, Thornton, Erskine etc.--not all of whom are available.
