As for McQuaid being one of the "toughest fighters in the league," what has he done to deserve that honor? Score a bunch of wins against middleweights and cans? Yeah, he's the fourth toughest guy on his own team and hugely benefits from other team's toughest guys looking for Thornton, Chara and Lucic before they get to him.

And exactly one person said Kaleta would beat McQuaid. What people are saying is that Kaleta has already fought a bigger, better, tougher fighter in Lucic, there's no reason he wouldn't go with McQuaid in the right circumstances.
McQuaid would be the toughest player on the Sabres assuredly (Scott is not a player). And I do believe McQuaid is about 205 pounds, since when is ~10lbs a huge deal (since the poster I quoted was lamenting over the massive weight class difference)?
