Belesky can take on most regular physical players but he can't be asked to take on tougher guys. Besides, he's more valuable on ice, if we sacrifice Belesky to take out opponent's tough guy, we lose.




That's just factually wrong.
I would like to see those facts. I can't recall one game this year where the Ducks played a team with a true heavyweight or at least had one in the lineup. When has there been an occasion this season when we needed someone to send a message? Every fight has been by middleweigts because they are the only ones who can play. Staubitz would be fine if he could actually do something with the puck.
