Well, I think it means more that Therrien has 12 forwards to play in any given game. Usually it's in set trios, or set combinations on special teams, but at ES you can doubleshift a top winger and have Parros skip a turn. It's not like Parros has to play every shift that the two other 4th line players play, especially if they're decent.

Anyway, I can hardly find a reason to complain. He cost nothing in terms of assets or even contracts under the 50 rule (1 in, 1 out, unless Lefebvre was on an AHL contract? ). He'll probably fight about 12-20 times next year, which should keep some of the other teams' meatheads busy for 5 minutes at a time, which is 5 minutes that they won't won't be harassing the Habs' other players.

It is a bit of a stark contrast though, from Briere to Parros. Rounding out the team with extremes.
