Yep, that's why I wished he wasn't re-signed since he'd be exactly the goon we'd want that's actually in his prime. Can't blame him for jumping on 3M.

A lot of good goons are acquired for little to nothing at a young age. Perhaps the Habs should try to get in on the action by being more proactive in the goon search/scouting instead of being reactive and picking up the washed up ones? I mean it can't be THAT hard to give out AHL deals to a couple young junior up and coming goons every year and hope one pans out.
