People say it won't make a difference, but it does. Maybe not in the W/L column directly, but it will help our confidence. Sestito, who's not even a good fighter, basically did whatever he wanted in front of our net because he knew we literally could do nothing to stop it. Granted, Sestito isn't exactly gonna be putting up a point a game, but he CAN lay out McDonagh or Nash and knock them out for the season. Having Asham, if nothing else, keeps idiots like Sestito in check because at the very least we now have a threat to respond. It also frees up people like Kreider to play with an edge because he knows at least one person will have his back.
Thank you. Yes, you don't win the game from winning fights, but keeping a** hats like Tostito in check might give skill guys a little more room and confidence to do what they need to do.
