Why would we or any team care about goons? That's not an NHL strategy, that's bush-league nonsense for beer leagues and bad movies. The least of the Habs problems is that plug, Orr, and his seven 4th-line minutes. He becomes a headline only during bad games. Anything resembling a decent game will see him following the simple instructions written on his palm to behave himself.

Having an 'enforcer' may be a big thing for the trailer-trash contingent of Toronto's fan base, but it's nothing special to NHL players who've been facing guys like this since they were 16.
