We don't really need to since pure heavy enforcers are an endangered species. If a guy like Brian Burke waive a guy like Colton Orr you know that the era of enforcers who can fight but can't play hockey is close to an end. Sure there are still a few left like John Scott ect but those guys may not be in the league for much longer. Then you have guys like Scott Thornton , Lucic ect but those guys can also play hockey. The Chris Neil , Brandon Prust ect are what enforcers will look like in the future.
As for the Habs , White - Moen - Staubitz is a decent trio. I'd add Paul Gaustad to the group this summer and we'd be set as far as team toughness in the bottom 6 is concerned. If we want a true heavy we could sign one to a two way contract and recall him if things are expected to get out of hand against X team.
