For the most part, it is a lot of waste. The most useful players from that list are Ruutu, Grier and Clark. Brad Winchester is an intriguing name as well, he's a 6'5" winger who netted 10 goals last season and previously scored 13 goals in 2009-10. He's a willing combatant, not the greatest or most intimidating at dropping the gloves, but he will stick up for his teammates and will drop the gloves with anyone.
Oh man, that is a rough list. All those guys are either too slow, too old or just not just good. If Terry Murray plays Westgarth 80 games we shouldn't have a problem.

Jordan Nolan, Rich Clune, Dwight King, and Ray Kaunisto are options too. Ray is learning to fight it seems, but we all know what Rich can do and Nolan is a like a poor man's Ben Eager....not a heavyweight but not a middleweight, somewhere in between with a little bit of skill.
