Mara was a crap fighter.

Asham's been a pretty good bottom liner for a while. I wish though that he could penalty kill and I think Levitate brings up a good point about how much gas he might or might not have left in his tank at age 34. He's been brought in to make up somewhat for the loss of Prust. Asham will fight practically anyone and he's rarely embarrassed--and teammates usually (maybe the exception of Christensen) usually like that. Career wise he has 92 regular season NHL goals and over 200 points. That puts him in a different category than your classic goon. That is just facts and there's really no coherent way of parsing that he's just some kind of thug.
