You still aren't saying what the point is in having a guy purely for fighting a la a Rosehill or Shelley or Cote (remember him?). There's no point to it.

Why should we have a guy that's just for fighting taking up a roster spot rather then a guy who can fight and play hockey at the same time? Like Lucic, Simmonds, Downie, or even lower-end quality 4th liners like Carcillo and Tootoo?

If you can think of a real legitimate reason to have flat-out goons like Rosehill on this team over a guy that can actually contribute in more then just fists then I'll admit I'm wrong.

EDIT: Also, as others have said, we already have guys like Hartnell and Simmonds that can fight and do other things well and you don't ever need to answer a goons call to fight. In fact, guys like MacIntyre and Scott can't keep an NHL job because they dominate everyone in fights and nobody wants to or does fight them.
