Because, frankly, that's a misguided belief. And there's pages upon pages of people in this thread pointing to the Bruins as being the prime example that deterrents don't work. Having a tough team + goons still doesn't prevent cheapshots. The B's receive cheapshots regularly--more than Montreal, even.
Mike, the Only people who bring up enforcers preventing cheapshots and head shots are the people who are against enforcers on a team.

Habs13, in reply to Andy, made the case for having a tougher team by pointing out the abuse Price, Subban and Kostitsyn had to face.

It isnt about Boston's players getting concussed. And you know that. But that is the only argument your side raises while ignoring the things that happen to our star players game after game.

Enforcers (and for anyone bringing up Laraque, he was a useless tool who did not stand up for his teammates while in Montreal) DO NOT PREVENT HEADSHOTS.

They do "take care of" the players who take liberties with their star players.

The Boston argument makes your side look very silly since many of us have repeatedly stated the obvious regarding headshots.
