Sorry, when you travel as much as a teams in the West do, it's not surprising they're moving more towards having a player who can actually contribute 5-7 minutes a night as opposed to basically playing 11 forwards.

Godard wasn't good enough at hockey to crack the second to worst team in the AHL on a consistent basis last year. Stop for a minute and think about that.
That has more to do with the coach and GM, dont tell me "Bizznasty" has any more skill than Godard. Some teams believe in tough hockey and others think they are Detroit
Some teams have enforcers on their rosters that they healthy scratch half the games but they are there if needed, Dallas pathetically doesnt even have that option. With how the first round of the playoffs went down there is still a chance that fighting goes up again and hopefully every team goes back to true entertaining 4th lines
