The problem also is the lack of players that could play hockey and do their role perfectly. I mean, it's great to talk about Thornton and Neil. But really how many other players exist like that. It comes with time and development. Our past administration didn't believe in it. Let's hope our present do. And maybe start drafting them. But we not really into "heavyweight enforcing" here....Bordeleau wouldn't change a freakin thing. He'd be doing the same sideshow that Laraque did. We might win some more moral victories though. Not sure that should be our main target.
