Agreed. I saw that too and knew who we were getting when the deal was made. Tons of guts and the technique to survive a scrap when the size mismatch is tremendous. I'm pretty sure you're talking about the scrap with Steve MacIntyre. There sure is a need for that type of no nonsense player to back up the rest of the team. Problem is Sather won't do the homework to get the right player like the Oilers did with Gadzic. He wastes picks (Scott) or hands out terrible contracts (Brashear, Boogaard, Asham, etc.).
