This isn't a toughness thread this is a heavyweight enforcer thread. Bowman never said you don't need toughness he said a guy who is only there to fight is a handicap.

And if you seriously are going to take the opinion of a 19 year old rookie over that of a coach who has 1244 wins and 9 Stanley Cups you need to re-evaluate things.

If this is not about enforcers then why is it the thread title and why are people always clamoring for every 5 min a game fighter that passes through waivers. Maybe you should go back through this thread and check out the most common list of names given. If you are saying we need a guy who can give a solid 10 min a game and can also fight there would be a lot less disagreements.
