Does Idaho have alot of fighters on the team or are they just really undisciplined?

Austin Smith is far and away the best guy on the ice for either team during games but there is a lot of talent here this year. From what I have seen live and other roster lists Idaho has to be a the top or near the top of the league as far as having AHL talent. Great for being top of the league now but not grea when the lockout ends and everyone goes back to the AHL and we get to watch out of work guys play the rest of the year.
The slow start was mostly on Besko who was less than stellar. Since Robinson took over the top spot they have been winning and Besko has picked up his game as well.
As far as tough guys.....not really. Just a lot of hard nosed guys who are probably pissed that they are even the ECHL year. Fights don't really hurt anything if you have a deep team. Both guys going to the box and rarely creating a power play. No harm no foul.
