Wonder why?
crosby's main work place peril is being hit by big D-men. (ignoring the rare puck to the face of course).
you stated enstrom's main work place peril is being hit ('ragdolled' in your words) by big forwards.

Apparently neither can handle those conditions very well, so they should be replaced by your logic, regardless of their performance in their given role.
