Actually you're right. Opponents haven't really dressed heavyweights against us this season and western teams actually don't have many heavyweights. Bolig, Reaver, Kassian, Biznasty, McGrattan are the only heavyweights that have gotten NHL icetime this season.
Still, Belesky is not the type of tough guys we play against. He's just not good enough. Staubitz, Souray and Allen are the toughest guys we have, all are better fighters than Belesky.
