Every single player. Hockey is a team sport and with that, there is a team dynamic that cannot be measured.......but it exists.

For a skill player, having someone fight battles on your behalf builds a tight knit team. Chemistry. Comraderie. Call it whatever, but the stronger the bond between a group of athletes is, the better the team results.
We already have that. Prust, Moen, White, Bouillon will drop the gloves with pretty much anyone and fight with regularity. Gorges, Armstrong, Subban, Nokelainen all fight a few times a season. How many more do we need?

When there's after the whistle scrums all our guys stick up for each other. Hell even Galchenyuk got a penalty in a scrum after Subban's big hit in Carolina. Whatever camaraderie gets created from fighting we already have that base covered. Not too mention fights aren't the only way to build camaraderie.
