If guys like Moen would be more willing to share the load in terms of fighting, the Habs wouldn't need a heavyweight. But since that's not the case, the Habs need to find a functional middleweight at the very least.
I can agree with that. I don't know why Moen isn't dropping them anymore. He doesn't seem nearly as involved as before.
Prust, hypothetical additional middleweight, White and Bourque (somewhat) should allow us to field a decent fighting squad.
The problem with heavy weights is that they are generally very bad hockey players. How can they bring toughness when the coach doesn't even see the need to use them? Especially with Therrien rolling 4 lines. Heavy weights that can play are usually power forwards and we could definitely use another one, its just that they aren't cheap.
