I mean, there has to be someone out there. I know those players are hard to find, but personally I would love to see the new management go out and find a guy who can fit that role and develop him from scratch. Prust obviously can play that role right now, and I'd have him until he retires if he plays the way that he has for us, but we need a true heavyweight who can play.

Anyone care to help me out?
Not a heavyweight but I really liked Tommy Veilleux when Victoriaville faced the Rockets here in Charlottetown. He was very intense and he seemed to love to hit. He was an aggressive forechecker and "ok" with the puck. He isn't tall but he has a big heart and he is a willing fighter. Maybe a 7th round pick, maybe.
