We can't count on 195 guys to punch out Mcquaid, Thorton, Lucic, or Chara.
Hey I'm just saying here, but Mcquaid is 195

No one is against a guy like that. It's the plugs that don't play hockey that we don't want.

As for the question asked by the OP, heavyweights who can also play hockey are few and far between and when a team finds one, they take care of him and try to keep him. I'm not in favour of having a guy who would hurt the team when on the ice, or being so intimidating that no one will want to drop the gloves with him (see Laraque).

Short and sweet: No, the Habs don't "need" a heavyweight enforcer unless one who can play falls on their laps or if they draft one.
I've seen enough of Parros. He's awesome and all with that mustach.. But he's just not the fighter people say he his. Neither the player. I love the mo tho.
