Oh sorry for the confusion then. Im fine with one forward who is an enforcer on the team. I dont think they need to dress 82 games though since some teams don't have a heavyweight and if Fraser is dressed he would be able to handle any fisticuffs. For some teams it's definitely nice to be able to trot out a Mclaren or an Orr if the other team wants to try and run around the ice taking liberties with skilled guys.
