He's a gamer come playoff time. He's a great locker room presence (reportedly). Stick him on the 4th line with Boyle and Dorsett and you finally have a formidable checking line that brings immense grit and passion.
All I'm saying is, let's not limit the options just because the toughness needs fixing. To me it needs total updating, start with a guy who will hopefully be here for years, Mcilrath. Why not, we've exhausted the 'buying guys based on their old self', why not bet on a young guy in the opposite direction. We gambled on him as it was, let it ride !
