interesting point. i should have probably been more specific, though.

i don't necessarily mean they're wrong for not hiding behind an enforcer. i get a huge kick out of watching these guys drop the gloves. but out of curiousity, if giroux breaks his hand/wrist on reese's helmet last night, what would you say?

there are plenty of "tough" guys on this team...rinaldo, simmonds, even hartnell and Z to an extent. if they want to hang in there and be physical, take opponents to task along the boards, and generally just not get pushed around, these guys have to step up their game

(i was just watching "highlights" from last years playoff series with boston, so you can imagine what fears i have heading into the post season)

and no, i don't want shelley remotely close to this team
