Vandermeer would be a great depth guy
and the only player on our team other than maybe Kassian capable of fighting heavyweights
getting knuckle-draggers that are depth guys isn't really a problem - you want "tough guys" that are actually on the ice a fair bit to be useful against a team like the Bruins.
(not saying we couldn't use more sandpaper on the blueline to make things a little tougher for the opposition in our own zone).
