Before anyone rips me for not wanting toughness, I do want toughness. What I don't want in the slightest are goons that play 3 minutes a night and get paid to pound faces in. I have no interest in those. We already had a talentless hack that Tortorella had a love connection with in Bickel. I hated Bickel throughout his entire tenure and was thrilled when he was sent back to the AHL, where he belongs.

Same goes for guys like Orr, Janssen, Scott, and whichever other goons are out there doing nothing but fighting with other goons devoid of talent.

What I want are players who can
A.) play hockey
B.) play tough, go to the rough areas, and muck it up in the corners.

And I am not of the opinion that goons fighting goons do anything to change to momentum of the game.
