That would give the Sabres an old-fashioned enforcer again, but also a guy that can play regular minutes (unlike a Peters).

Toughness will be a big issue for the next 20 games or so, but it's something that can be easily addressed in the offseason. And as others pointed out, McNabb will be here for sure next year, which gives us 3 defenseman who can hit and fight in him, Webs, and Regehr. Granted, can fight doesn't necessarily mean they're all good at it
Its likely Foligno will be up as well. He doesn't have the offensive upside of Kassian but is far more consistant in his physical and hard edged play.
