We could have got the toughest guy in the league a couple weeks ago, Steve MacIntyre off waivers. Why pass on Steve and get this guy?

brown 5'11 205

scott 6'8 270
Who cares about size, Orr and Scott are heavyweights, McLaren's a light-heavy and Brown's a middleweight. Orr's coming off a concussion just like 99% of all regular fighters are.. everyone's been tagged a couple times in their career. He's had over a calender year to rebound, he's good to go!

Orr's one of the best fighters in the NHL, McLaren is definitely riding shotgun to him

He's a pretty heavy "light" heavy.

You must think Pat Quinn still coaching the Leafs

Maclaren vs Macdermid
Nobody in the Bruins is going to fight Orr. Lucic will not risk it.

For Lucic's sake, I hope he learned his lesson last time they fought. He got exposed in a bad way during that fight. "Heavyweight". HA.

McQuaid is the only one who might fight Orr.

You keep your waiver priority even if you claim 10 players in 10 days...

In a normal season, the standings from the last season determine waiver priority until a certain date (November 1st, I believe).

The same surely applies this year, but I haven't seen what the date will be.

I'm almost 100% certain that not enough games have been played for this year standings to count.

The NHL contract limit might get in the way.

The New York Rangers are the most valuable NHL franchise at $1.2 billion, taking the top spot on the Forbes list for the first time since 2004.

The magazine said Tuesday that Montreal is second at $1.18 billion, followed by Toronto at $1.15 billion.

Right.

My hyperbole was hyperbolish, but the point still stands.

Cool, I guess we need 2-3 enforcers on the roster at all times, no sense keeping any spots open for guys like Aucoin or Connolly who might have scored a point or two.

Gotta like Carlyle smart thinking here with this pick. Anyone noticed how Scott thumped Thornton last night and subsequently the Bruins fell apart. Carlyle now has Orr, Mclaren (and brown injured) as well as Fraser. The leafs will employ the same strategy to beat the bruins. And this is a good example of how ineffective wilson was as a coach. Kessel is not useful in these games against bigger opponents. For the Bruins you need to shake their confidence by physically thumping them.

There are roles to be filled, no matter how much those 2 guys may be more skilled. They would be terrible terrible players in a fourth line role.

You can't fill your lineup with only skill in the NHL. It's not an all-star game. We have plenty of skill all ready.

EDIT:

I'm not sure if you were sarcastic or not to be honest after re-reading. Either way, my point either supports your claim or puts you in your place. Heh

Without muscle we will lose.

What was our record last year against Boston 0 and 8? BuffaLo has found a hole in their armour.If nothing else we dont have to be embarassed.We tried a full lineup of ballerinas last year,I like the new approach.
