I just still fail to see how having a 4th line goon in there to have one fight a night prevents the other physicality on the other 3 lines. I just don't think it does. He only faces the other 4th line.
Let me give you an example. David Backes leads his team with hits. He plays on the first line. How does having a "fighter" keep him from being so physical on the first line?
I don't think it does.
Rick Nash is leading his team with hits. and so on.
How does having a fighter make us a more physical team? I just don't see it.
The PREDS said goodbye to being physical and hello to a more speed skating team the second Shane O'Brien cleaned out his locker.
