He can't come in and all of a sudden make the Habs so much tougher to come up against, just like nobody thought the Panthers were tough to play against just because they had Parros. Dropyourgloves only had Parros winning 1 fight last season and it was against Nick Grossmann who is a non fighter so that's a bit worrying.
and 1 year before, only 2 loss in 11 fights. Bad year happen, maybe he will bounce back.
