But if anyone can prove that wrong, I'm all ears.
I agree its hurt us in the playoffs. Though I don't think guys like Laraque or Orr are the answer. Even Asham. I think guys like Clutterbuck or Neil are the kind of toughness we could use. Guys like Stewart or Malone.
I don't agree that it would prevent injuries. I just don't think players are afraid to get punched a few times.
