That's because having a fighter doesn't protect players. However, Volpatti is a solid 4th liner who can fight, rather than just being a fighter. Decent wheels, solid positionally and decent defensively, along with the hitting and fighting that's been mentioned. Wouldn't have thought that a year ago, but he's really had a good showing this year.
