Bring Gudas up, he won't be afraid to throw the body or fight either. We need toughness, this team is too soft. We can't have opposing teams bouncing our players around with no repercussion. That being said, Labrie is going to be back from his conditioning assignment tomorrow. Hopefully if the Rangers play a little rough, we can give it right back.

Crombeen was supposed to patrol and keep guys honest, but I feel his fights have no effect on the team, or just take energy away. Fights I think only energize teams if people are swinging away with reckless abandon or it's totally one-sided. Crombeen has only had one of these fights, and I don't remember who it was against. Both were swinging away.
I don't think it's fair to criticize Labrie since he has played so sparingly. He always sticks up for teammates in Syracuse and I'm sure he'll eventually get the chance to show that he's willing to do the same thing for for us.

If we played with half the toughness and character that Syracuse does, I'd be happy.
