I've always assumed we never did it because our D-men have been undersized and / or unagressive, with the exception being Webs, and last year, SOB. You can't teach big and mean. Franson and Gill both have the size, but neither really have that nasty attitude.

One of my favorite memories from last years PO's was Kesler running Peks, and Webs basically picking him up and slamming him down on the ice, trying to get him to man up.

edit: I know Franson no longer plays for the Preds, just saying when he was here he had the size, but not the nasty.
