Watching the habs get rag dolled is embarrassing and frustrating to players like gorges ect who have to defend themselves in positions they should never be in.
Get one and get one now.
That's like saying Toronto has a panzy team having to send Grabovsky after Prust to get clocked.
...or Boston having a panzy team since Krejci was the one trying to "take care" of Pouliot.
Even if you have 3 250lbs heavyweights on the 4th line, if the other team sends Orr after Plekanec, they won't be there to "jump in" unless the jump off the bench.
