I don't want to add a pure goon though. Tootoo is perfect, since he adds more than just a pure fighter.

I'd give someone like Mike Rupp or Konopka a chance. 4th line center who can win vital faceoffs and take on pretty much anyone in the league.
I think Ericsson is underrated in his fighting. He has beaten Dorsett and held his own vs. Clowe and Clarkson. I think if needed he could hang in there with some of the better fighters.
