The best Spitfire IMHO to sit in front of the net did it in a Guelph uniform, and was generally considered as merely an enforcer in Windsor. Not sure if Ty has the skills that Cam had, but the opposition goalie is not going to have a good night with Ty's ass in his face, and if a defenseman tries to move him that makes two guys providing a screen. Too often dating back to the illustrious Mem Cup days, our powerplays had no Spitfire in front of the net, then again when Ellis was shooting not many would want to be there.

Better to design a PP to use the skills on the team rather than to try to force the team to adapt to a particular skillset they may lack.
