I would be in favour of adding a tough guy or two to the bottom lines, but I think the more pressing need was size and more specifically, size in the top 6. I think we've tried to address it and should be better with Cole and a healthy Patches.
I don't agree with the idea that a few tough guys hurt you as dramatically as many posters are claiming. They are afterall, for the most part, 4th liners. A 4th liner who can fight, I think would be a welcomed addition, not really a necessity, but a nice added bonus.
To me, size has been a valid concern, more so than toughness. I'll always go back to Robert Lang and what he did for our roster before he was hurt. He gave us another dimension and made us tougher to play against without being overly tough himself. Size alone is tough to play against, whether said player is considered tough or not.
