It's real simple: get a guy(let's call him player 98) who can play a regular shift and can fight like the dickens. Said player challenges Neil, who refuses to fight, then player 98 hammers Cowen and/or Methot into the glass. This results in something called pain. Pain tends to make you feel sad. It also makes players on your bench feel the opposite of sad, which is happy. Opposing team doesn't feel as happy as when it was just Neil pounding players into the ice. This is good. Opposing team might also want to reconsider player 98's formal invitation. This is also good.
Why Cowen or Methot?
Karlsson, Turris and Alfredsson are more inviting targets with bigger payoffs.
Big guy running big guy does not deliver the same result as big guy running smaller skill guy.
Because that is the approach Ottawa is taking. And it is working wonderfully.
