I think so. He eclipsed 100 PIM six times in his career, and had more than 90 four other times. He's not a big guy, but appears to have been pretty feisty and a good competitor. He also wouldn't be completely alone in that regard, Ovechkin has his value as a first forechecker into the zone, as he's been known to fly in like a kamikaze, make a hit to jar the puck loose, and then cycle into the slot to get open for a shot. I haven't gotten around to Gare's bio yet, but it should be done in the next couple days, and hopefully I can verify he is capable of filling that role with some help from Ovechkin.
