You need to be tough to win in the NHL.
Only Detroit is an exception because they are an all star team
And to return into the subject, if we trade Moen, we will have 1 guy who can fight ad it's White who did not play a single game this year
Considering that every team on your list has 3-4 tough guys in their lineup, there must be something more to being a top team aside from fighting. If everyone has it(and from your list, it looks like everyone pretty much has it), then something is else is differentiating these teams.
It's one component, to say it's THE component is false and that is what Enforcer4 was eluding to, a thesis which you defended on this very page and decided to switch topic.
As for your list, you rejected Cody Bass earlier, but then thought it would be okay to include Tom sestito for the Flyers though he has played 5 games.
