Yes, we do need an enforcer. But at the right price. No need to overpay. And the day we'll really believe in it, we'll start drafting them. We don't have a whole lot of histories with drafting/trading for goons. Look at the Timmins drafting since 2003. Only look at the forwards or D's that were indeed pure goons...or grit guys with "some" punching qualities....It starts with Jimmy Bonneau....then Greg Stewart, Andrew Conboy and Ryan White. Add the Ian Schultz acquisition. Clearly, we're "babies" in that departement....I guess we can only improve. But it does seem pretty far in Timmins and Co "qualities" in a draft.
I'd rather Timmins take a chance on guys with talent in the later rounds. He's gotten more than his fair share of late round gems. You don't need to draft an enforcer to get one. Just go back through this thread and see how many are put on waivers every year.
