By all means bring someone heavier than Prust to help him, but don't bring someone who won't be on the ice when something happens. That's exactly why I had created that list, to go along what Therrien seems to like to do. I really don't see a Scott, a Bordeleau or a Parros playing like Therrien likes everyone else to play, at least 10 minutes. I do see many others though...
Therrien loves to rotate fourth line, but every team he coached, he had 1 enforcer on it. He loves those enforcer. It's not about being on the ice while something happens, because even Prust can't be on the ice everytime something happens, BUT, it's about sending a message that if you do something, you will have to pay the price for it. It keeps the opposition in-check.
