The problem is, a lot of the guys being cited in this thread ARE goons. Someone made the argument that Godard and Engellend somehow make the Penguins better. The other problem, is that these kinds of players (players who are tough AND can play hockey) aren't readily available. Who should the Habs have gone after this offseason from the UFA pool? Almost everyone named in the threads OP is terrible as a hockey player. We could have made trades, but we'd have to overpay, then there would be a thread complaining about how we had to sell the farm to get Aaron Asham or something.

There are people here that make it seem like these players are in abundance and can be had for cheap. That's just not the case.
