Wrong, wrong, wrong ! Not to jump on you, because I understand your point about needing skill, but not ONE of the guys you named is a credible tough-guy threat. Brashear scares people. (Not Shanahan, but hey, who would?) He's not shy about being a true goon. And he wanted to play here. It's a bigger mistake to not have signed Brashear and kept Downey/Murray than it was to sign Samsonov IMO.

We would benefit from a punch-out artist. This team needs one badly.
