Exactly. I've seen this guy play and he's one of the last few people on any roster who would drop the gloves to protect a teammate. I caught glimpses of Game 1 and 2 in the LA/STL series and he reminded me of Pacioretty; tall, bulky, soft along the boards, inconsistent, doesn't know how to finish a check, etc. He can definitely fight, but the problem is that he just doesn't do it enough. I can already see people calling him out for not being physical and dropping the gloves enough.

A realistic option would be Ryan Reaves. This guy is the perfect 4th liner. Good size, actually tough and isn't afraid to hit people. If I was MB, I would throw anything between 1.5 and 2 millions at him.
