Ask the Sabres if they think Scott is useless.

And yes sometimes there are situations in every player's career where they have to drop the gloves. Even Nick Lidstrom did it...

Bruins have pushed the Habs around for a long time - Chara jumping Latendresse, Chara on Pacioretty, guys running at Subban, beating up non fighters in Spacek, Hamrlik, and Pyatt...

When the Habs were respectable they had Kordic, Corson, Robinson, Nilan, McPhee, and others to neutralize the Boston teams. No reason we couldn't have a heavyweight to help Prust.
1980's hockey... We are in 2013.
