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.

Wow! This is the real world. Players like the ones you want are very rare. The only way I see the Habs getting this ideal player is if they draft a tough guy and groom him to be an adequate hockey player in the AHL. Which could take years....
What is Clowe in your opinion? In mine, he's an enforcer who can play hockey, similarly to Milan Lucic, Brandon Prust, Chris Neil and David Clarkson (just to name a few).
