Brian Boyle is a gamer and I give him a ton of credit but he should be a secondary pugilist. Someone who mucks it up and can drop the gloves if something needs to be done when he is out there. I'm hoping Kreider turns into the same type of fighter eventually. 2-3 fights a year when needed.

Dorsett is a scrapper. Love the guy. He can't do it all himself.

Where is anyone else? Falk will, rarely in the lineup.

It's an issue that needs to be addressed before someone like Nash drops the gloves again.
Falk was in the lineup and right there on the ice, but he did nothing. it's not a playoff game, they have a good lead and he just stands there. There is too much talk about who is a good fighter, sometimes a player just has to do it, win or lose, like Dorsett did. If Dorsett was trying to set an example, it was missed by the big lump #44.
