Okay let me explain it this way. If we had Ho-sang on the ice and lets say he's got an extra step that night. Out comes Zweep and Ho-sang starts getting head hunted..hmmm if we had no Bilike, Bowen, Clarke ummm whos going to keep a guy like Zweep in line or put him in the penalty box to keep him away from our players to protect them? Ho-sang ya okay
Bilike, Bowen and a lesser extent Clarke (since he does show some impressive skill) are there for a reason...to play a game of memory match..you put your tough guy we put ours and they both are off the ice so our stars can focus on the game rather than wondering if theyre heads are still on theyre shoulders
Your example isn't that good imo. A guy like Zweep doesn't play that much maybe a handful of shifts a game. If the game is in Windsor Boughner isn't going to put Ho-Sang out there against Zweep. Furthermore the coach isn't going to put out Zweep if he sees Ho-Sang out on the ice. The neanderthal era is pretty much over in junior hockey.
