He isn't a super heavyweight but he can go with anybody and can still paly a regular shift unlike Laraque his last year here.
I have nothing against staubitz, but he can't handle chara, scott or whoever. Let's not kid ourselves. Besides, these big time heavyweights are pointless. I'm all for the whites, moens, etc of the hockey world, but Chicago traded Scott while on a playoff position run...for a 5th rounder. The guy plays, on average 6:30-7 min a game. These guys CAN be effective, but it's really not a big deal. A lot of times they're scratched and don't even play. If they were so damn effective, they would play 82GP.
