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.
Staubitz can play a regular shift, Scott can't, he is brutal on defense, and up front he is a d-man playing wing.

Why would we get somebody to fight Chara he fights twice a year and usually it's against non fighters(Gill Lecavalier Spetza Harrison).

The point of having a guy like Staubitz is so guys like White and Moen don't have to be concerned that a guy like Scott will come after them if they defend their tammates.
