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.
Reaves is just 6 foot 1, but weighs like 230 lbs, his skating is fine as he can catch guys to hit, and he hits a lot. He drops them a lot and is an okay fighter. Problem is he has one year left with the Blues, so wed have to trade for him. I dont see why he would get anything close to $2M, Id think a 3 year deal at $4M would easily do it.Hed be great for the 4th line, of course somebody would have to go.
