I do think that the days of the enforcers and goons are gone, but I see nothing wrong with a guy that is going to get in someone’s face and take him to task for dirty playing.
Staged fights are not worth the time, but a legitimate get into the scrum and sort someone out is ok by me.

I hope you do not think I was telling you that you have or have not seen Peluso play. I assume for the most part that people on this forum are self eductated enough, have a love of Hockey and like to debate players, teams etc. We all know what it is like trying to talk to a non fan or a casual fan...their eyes glaze over as we postulate.

I also hope that he is not just a goon, and I cannot see the reasoning for the Jets picking up a goon. I like the risk/reward of picking this kid up, cost us nothing, traded nothing and we get all the rewards if he turns out to be useful. I trust that the scouts have some good things to say about him. I do not want to see a pylon on the ice.

I think I have now said anything and everything that I can about the kid.
We will have to see what happens on the ice, or off the ice for that matter.

Cheers!
No wasn't you.
