There's a place for Goegan, but not the MLD, I agree. Fontinato, on the other hand, has some all-star recognition that is impossible to ignore. At worst, he's an elite "niche player" in the MLD. A better, defense-only version of Marty McSorley, who I think is an excellent spare.
I would be news to me if he played more than Johnson the first season in Montreal and Gauthier during the last. You raise an intresting question about McSorley, is he really MLD material? While I don't have any research infront of me, I get the feeling that McSorley is Jimmy Orlando but a bit better offensively and worse defensively (and with longevity as Orlando had WW2 interupting his career).
