There's no tangible evidence that having guys on the team that can fight is conducive to a winning team.

Guys play bigger when they know theri teammates are ride or die MF'ers.

The 2011 Rangers had no business getting to the Eastern Conference Finals.

They lacked scoring, they played a super perimeter game they bent but never broke.

They were tough as nails to play againstand it's no coincidence that they were one of, if not THE league leader in fighting majors.

No the fighting didn't directly lead to wins, but guys played a tougher brand of hockey knowing that the garbage would be taken care of.
