An enforcer at the expense of a forward that is better than him always pushes me away from the idea of wanting a heavyweight on our team. Remember Staubitz? The guy was useless in all aspects of the games other than fighting and there were times when we'd throw him out there against the Bruins and we'd still lose the game. Remember Laraque? We threw him out there on our first line against the Bruins with Koivu and higgins in the PLAYOFFS and that handicapped our first line. No one wanted to fight him so they'd just avoid him and all Laraque did was follow Lucic trying to challenge him, he was pretty much just skating around with more talented players all around him. Only way we should get an enforcer is if its someone like Neil, who could contribute offensively and physically.
