Fighting is up in the NHL this year. After Buffalo beefing up to match up with Bruins and it seemed to work ok in their first meeting and after Leafs adding Orr and other and punking Habs in their building, I think there is a little bit of an arms race going on, especially in the East.

The last two cup winners thrived on adding toughness to their teams.

It's not going to turn Bordeleau into someone who will fetch a gigantic return but if the trend of NHL continuing in the current direction, the demand for someone like him going up and even more so for guys that can play on a third line while being tough.

Crombeen and a fifth was traded for two fourth round picks. Brandon Prust got $10M over four years. It's strange times around the league.
