I wasn't really knocking Nodl or saying Rinaldo was better, but I get what you are saying. The point is that an enforcer (any enforcer) playing five minutes a game is not really going to be a difference maker from having a different 4th liner there playing eight minutes. If you have the enforcer playing 15 minutes a game in key spots, yeah, I'd rather have someone else. But if its a choice between a guy who will drop the gloves and add grit playing five minutes per game or a slightly more skilled player playing eight minutes per game, I'll take the enforcer.
