Shawn Thornton is a true enforcer because he can play NHL minutes and participate in defensive situations.
Leaf fans were frustrated with Colton Orr taking up an NHL spot until the Canadiens game. Now they love him for entertainment reasons. Our defence made him look like a superstar.
Not true. Leaf fans love Colton Orr. Always have.
So better teams have more depth and can afford to have an enforcer, and poorer teams can afford to because they don't have depth? Is that correct?
Bottom line is this: we don't mind being pushed around. It's that simple.
