It might satisfy your own blood lust to see a PK Subban get some street justice for touching one of our stars, but if you truly want a "tough" team, you're better off building with guys who can persevere and play their own game in light of being run (a la Detroit) or you should be building a roster that can handle themselves from the top to the bottom, like Boston. Having some goons sitting around taking up a 4th line role doesn't add anything to a winning formula. If prospects like Bigg and Ross pan out, those are the elements you'd ideally be looking for for team toughness. Not this goon ****.
