I question his role as an enforcer as well. I don't think he has been particularly intimidating so far in his career and he has done nothing to improve that image. Ivanans looked like a guy you don't want to mess with, Westgarth looks like a bad joke. I might have bad memory but when Ivanans pushed some midget away from his goalie, that was it, there was no reaction. Maybe a mumble like "@£%# Russian monkey..." but that's it. Westgarth on the other side... he has no respect and it doesn't matter if the guy is 6'4 or 5'6.
As I said I might have selective memory here, I don't know. I do know that everyone was saying "Yeah, but Westgarth will be a much better player than Ivanans" and somehow I don't really see it. They are the same and Ivanans would have taken a big lead if he only managed to stay on his skates a bit longer.
