If you feel that its the wrong direction thats fine. But it was time for a different one and thats why Gaustad and Roy are no longer with the team.

The only reason I mentioned the drafting was because they already started to make an impact last season.

Anyways Scott will barely play. An enforcer was needed desperately, so that was necessary, but come on...will he play enough to make a soft team tough? Unlikely and Ott plays on an edge. But a Marchand-like edge. Marchand does not make the Bruins tougher. Agitators jobs are to dive and yap. They make teams soft and Ott adds to a surplus of that in Buffalo.
They didn't need an enforcer that will be in the line-up every night, they already have McCormick for that. What they need is someone thats physical and willing to drop the gloves and can also play in the top 6.

I don't think Buffalo is going to be the pinko pushovers that some (well, one) are making them out to be.
Thats how I feel about Ott. Are him and Marchand both agitators? Yep. But Ott is also in the top of the league in hits every season and does quite a bit of fighting.
