The habs have always been about speed and smart quick neutral zone transition,
plugging in a heavyweight isn't necessary IMO
Look at it this way, the habs just barely lost to one of the toughest teams in the NHL last night. But why? Because they don't have a heavyweight? Not at all. They outhit Boston and there wasn't a single fight
pretty much this, while I get that some wants the Habs to be tougher, a goon isnt the way to go...
if anything, those advocating for an enforcer should look at the B line up a little... what makes them "tougher" IMO is that most of those who are qualified as tough players also happen to play on top 6 (Lucic) or the first pairing D (Chara)... there's a HUGE difference between those guys and a goon playing on the 4th line for about 5 minutes a game.
