I think it is more important than ever to have a full time enforcer like McGratton. Just because Jackman is willing to chuck 'em, I don't think that gets any respect or elbow room for the younger players or for the vets like Stajan, Tanguay, Iggy? who the kids are supposed to look up to. Building confidence and developing the precious young skilled talent we have will rely on respect for our jersey that will not be gained any other way than fear for at least the next couple of years.

Again, we will need to have a degree of grittiness/toughness (big hitters would qualify as well as goons) like Flames of old to be a deterrent to other teams hoping to dominate us physically and mentally while getting our **** back together.
