Also Primeau's fight card is hardly anything great.

This year: Lance Ward, Rhett Warrener and Murray Baron
Last year: Steve Staios, Chris Simon and Ed Jovanovski

If those are something to behold then the Leafs fighters are the "Gods" of enforcers
Well it is becoming more and more apparent this is simply a case of a homer who doesn't know what he is talking about. You looked at 2 years of a players fight card, which by the way is more impressive than Roberts' Guerin, Lappy, and Wilm fight card (althought he was injured last year).

Again, as I've said Primeau has more fights than Roberts in his career. He has fought Jim Kyte, Luke Richardson, Kelly Chase 3x, Bryan Marchment, Jeff Odgers, Shane Churla, Rob Ray, Enrico Ciccone, Stephane Quintal 2x, Darian Hatcher, Kelly Buchberger 2x, Jim Cummins, Todd Simpson 2x, Basil McRae, Matthew Barnaby 2x, Mike Peluso 2x, Sandy McCarthy, Kris King, Ken Belanger, Dale Purington, Randy McKay, Peter Worrell, Brad Brown, Jason Weimer, and many others. For a nonfighter and a player who is relyed upon mainly for scoring (before this year), that is a fantastic fight card, and comparable to any nonenforcer in the league. He even fought Bob Probert in practice when he was in Detroit. Ask anyone who knows anything about hockey fights and the will tell you that Keith Primeau is a very effective fighter who has fought his fare share of enforcers, even though he doesn't have to.
