Getting a couple 6'8 guys to play on the 4th line would make us a bigger team, but it wouldn't help DD outmuscle anyone.
Led the league in most lost fights (subjective voting but just throwing it out there: http://dropyourgloves.com/fights/Lea...=1&Season=2013).

I'm not sure anyone is advocating the only issue wrong is the lack of a goon. My opinion is adding a 'good' goon would improve the Habs one step. Will it make the Habs a contender? Probable not. I view team improvement as an incremental process rather than just waiting on one major fix all move.

I'm against the idea of playing a goon top 6 or big minutes, but having one on the 23 man roster? I fail to see the issue/rationale to argue against it.
