We should be focusing on getting AHL players that can play hockey so that you have players you can recall in case of injury.

And yes my post was a little harsh, but I think it was more because of another poster that always mentions fighting.
Jean is not a fighter. There are guys in the AHL who have been fighting for years. That is their job. Sometimes when they don't find someone on the other side that can keep them honest, they go a little overboard.

McIlrath can hold his own but he should not be asked to fight any goons. Haley is a good middleweight. Like Prust, he should not take on anyone the size of Boogaard or Parros.
