I agree with you on Ruutu--we missed the boat on him big time, but these are guys for better or worse so either get on or get off.
Hoggan? Has he ever had a single fight? I think the only reason that we *assume* he will because he *said* he would be willing.

Donovan is not known as a scrapper, but I guess he will from time to time. Not really his role.

Primeau seems unwilling, at least he did last year.

I'm not sure what you've seen from Bergeron or boyes that indicates that they would drop the gloves. Personally, I don't want our two best forwards defending a teammate or themselves for that matter.
