I'll take Martinek over Carkner and Joensuu over Boulton any day. Toronto does have some tough guys but they also have a lot of speedy forwards and a slow defender like Carkner will have his problems with teams like that as shown last night.
I agree Carnker and Boulton dont need to be dressed every night but when you have a team like Toronto who is dressing 2 HW goons on the 4th line and a HW goon on defence it's games like this where these guys need to be in the line-up.
Against teams like Caps ect that pose no threat goon wise then I agree those guys should be sitting in those games. I just feel considering who Toronto was dressing in their home building I just think the Isles made the right move last night.
Orr,Fraser and Mclaren were real quiet last night, I dont thik thats by chance. They knew if they start getting out of hand there are a couple of guys they are going to have to deal with on the other side.
