He has essentially been a PPG player in the AHL. Does his placement on the 4th line mean he too is a fighter? Obviously not.

The Canucks don't ice a goon like the Bruins do. You make it sound like Weise went after Bergeron. I would personally say that Weise and Horton are a match in toughness (confirmed by their afternoon tilt). Lastly, it's not as if Weise jumped Horton - they were both willing combatants.
Bruins don't have a goon. Thornton is a good hockey player.
