no he won't, the only thing he can do is react to an incident that has already happened. Malkin still would have gotten injured had macintyre played in that game. Crosby still would have gotten a concussion had macintyre played in that game. A guy like him just isn't necessary in today's game.
It's not like anybody wants MacIntyre taking a regular spot.

We're playing a team that has made a habit recently of playing over the line and not having anyone take them to task. Sometimes you have to let the opposition know that they can't just run around taking liberties. A behemoth like MacIntyre settles things down quickly if opposition guys want to act tough and get in your star's/goalie's kitchen, because believe it or not, the refs don't call everything they should.
