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.
Burke waived Orr because Rosehill is a better player, he can at least keep up with the play.

Gaustad isn't a guy that will add toughness, he fights like he is 5'9" 170lbs. what did he do when Lucic ran over Miller...SFA.
