I don't mind a good scrap, but I care way more about winning the game on the score board & in order to do so you need guys who can contribute offensively & defensively.
In what world would a guy like Newbury who's played 72 NHL games in 10 seasons deserve a spot over a guy like Max Talbot who's played 504 NHL games in 9 seasons? I just don't know how you can justify a stance on that other than you just want another guy in the lineup who fights.
It's not the 70's anymore no matter how much you want it to be, you can't decorate your lineup with talentless goons all over the place & expect to win hockey games.
In today's NHL you need guys who have multiple skill sets along with fighting skills guys like Lucic, Hartnell, Simmonds, etc.
