In the summer I went to the Oilers prospect camp and I sat in front of Oilers color man/former NHL enforcer Louis Debrusk...and basically eavesdropped(not my finest moment) on his conversation with the other media guys. He was talking about enforcers and the guys that choose not to fight guys like MacIntyre are only hurting their own careers because they're making themselves irrelevant. The guy he used as an example of being a huge spot picker was Westgarth. Apparently that's his reputation around the league amongst other heavyweights. It's believable too. His fight card isn't very impressive for a guy his size.

So I'm not saying this to bash Scott...but if Westgarth was willing to fight him twice, I doubt many heavyweights are afraid of him. Dorsett wasn't even willing to fight Hordichuk in a game where the Blue Jackets were down and in need of a momentum shift a couple months ago.
