It's not about having a tough guy.

It's about having a tough team.

The tough guy would probably be on the bench while that play develops and then Malone was sent off. He can't do anything.

Having a tough team: 3-4 last years of flyers(not as much this year IMO) and the bruins are a good example because there is almost always a tough guy on the ice to protect the other players "in case" anything happens. Take a run at Krejci? Lucic shows up. Take a run at Bergeron? Chara shows up. Try to take Seguin out? Thornton shows up. When playing those teams, there isn't really a chance to take a cheap shot or to play on the edge without having the whole team smoke you.

That's my two cents.
