First, you need to ignore current Habs players when they speak "off the record" regarding the desire to have an enforcer on the team.

Next, you need to ignore what was posted a page or two ago regarding Kadri playing bigger than what he is and the added freedom that he has with big tough guys on the team backing him up.

Finally, you need to ignore the play of Bergeron, Krejci, Paille and Marchand on a Bruins team full of "backup". Paille used to be a kitten with the Sabres and now he is balls to the wall aggression.

After you have ignored all of that, then you can truthfully state that an "how does an enforcer change(s) that".

The truth remains that this team does not perform as well against more physical and intimidating teams.
