Whether that guy is playing in the Central league, the ECHL, or the Quebec fighting league we need to have someone that protects our investments.
I agree. And if youre not going to have that one guy you need to have a lot of toughness throughout the line up. The way I look at it is Grant, Callahan and Evans are the only guys who are a threat and none of those guys are a threat to real legit tough guys.

And one of Callahan and Grant usually dont dress

Nyquist is playing tonight though, thats good news
