For people saying we dont need goons like boulton or carkner how are they considered goons? They can skate they can play hockey but not like you top guys. Do either of them go out and two hand anyone or elbow, hit people from behind, sucker punch, knee i could go on. Guys like cooke, avery for example are cheap shot artists and until that is completely out of the game you will always see guys like Boulton and Carkner. The typical goon is out of the game now like grimson, tony twist, Cox. Now in todays NHL you have to be able to play the game to stay in the game. I think as well as the teams that keep signing Boulton and Carkner as well guys like Orr, Westgarth and so on agree. IF people dont think guys like this are needed and skilled teams dont need guys like this go watch the Leafs sens game where the leafs player in a fight just head butted the sens guy.
