Rats and dirty hits aren't going to be deterred no matter who you put on the ice.
Has anybody ever actually looked at whether or not having a bunch of goons/fighters/hitters actually deters the same behaviour in the opposition?

It's funny how so many people seem to assume that it does but I'm not aware of any statistics that actually prove this and I think you might be right. Actually, maybe having a bunch of goons actually leads to more checking, fights and injuries.
