I think you focus on building a strong team first and the 13-14th guys fill roles you haven't added in the regular top 12. For instance, if the habs were composed of physical gritty forwards in top 6 who also fight often and well, I would see no point in having a 13th forward who fights. I'd rather a guy like darche at that point, a utility player.
In this case, say the habs get Gaustad, keep moen and white, then the need for an enforcer isn't as great, but a guy like blunden as 13th forward is still okay because he has the hustle and serves another purpose besides fighting.
If we get Prust and the other combo I showed above, blunden is irrelevant and I'd much rather add a PP specialist or darche than an enforcer.
