I was looking at Stortini and he's a real nutshell. Might not be a good fighter/player but he could damn be a bigger White, wich in my mind is not worse than Armstrong.

The best possible choice for any team looking for a deterrent is McIntyre and its not even really close. He's not a great player no hw fighter really is but if he's sheltered with 2 other defensively responsible people on the fourth line, it would be ideal. As for fighting, McIntyre is without question the most feared in the league, would be scary to see him mad. Trevor Gilles is avail also, think he's playing in some league is Saskatchewan.

When you get to the NHL you start from the bottom and work your way up kido. You don't start at the top. Quite simple to understand.

tough guy in the ahl are as tough and probably more. PL3, Big mac, wrecker, Bordeleau, are easy top10 in the nhl. And Bordeleau have fighted Orr and got a win. Enforcer make their name in the Ahl. Nhl is a reward for them.

and Gillies is in the khl no?

Many tough guys have come up from the a, many have not made it in the NHL. I know Bordeleau is a great fighter but one you get to the NHL you prove yourself. Guys like Orr and Thornton have proved their worth in the NHL with 375+ games played. It's a little early (10 games in to be touting Bordeleau) as the next coming. Time will tell. I'm quite sure Gillis is no longer in the khl, he's in some bush league now, hate to be the dude to set him off.

He is in the Pens organization but I can't imagine the asking price would be too high.

I wonder how much it would take to get "The Hand of God" to come out of retirement.

Guys Habs don't need a heavyweight enforcer. We want another soft skill player that will get killed by a goon! Remember?

Self explanatory.
(White and Prust is all we have right now since Moen and Armstrong are letting White and Prust take over the policemen jobs).

Prevented Pleks from almost being kneed?, prevented this or that...I don't have a crystal ball (you don't either), but I know this...we don't have 4-5 goons like the Bruins and Leafs have...so you don't ****ing sit White during this kind of game where so many GOONS are dressed. What are we? The Montreal Ghandis? I'm actually a pacifist...so I respect Ghandi's historical/incredible legacy, but this is hockey...and as long as the other team is dressing 4-5 goons...we have no choice but to dress what we have for some protection (White, Prust, Moen-still-there?, Armstrong-retired?), OR...no team has goons (is the other option). I'm not going to sit here while Pleks and Gorges get injured by nobody GOONS. White may have prevented this or that...maybe not, but you dress him, mother ****ing period.

It was Prust VS 4-5 Goons.
The Leafs won because they played hockey...we were asleep and didn't show up, and then Prust started bullying everyone. As a result of this bullying... I beleive the Leafs decided to give some back and they had many goons to do it.
Leaf goons can't play hockey for their lives (Bruin goons can...some of them), so don't tell me they were dressed for hockey. Imo, if Prust didn't bully some Leaf players...there would be no mess in the end (imo). But you still dress White for a game like that...in case.

Prust went after Komarov because Komarov was running everyone. You suggest he goes quiet and lets this go, when he was brought in a team that took the resolution of being harder to play against? Even knowing he was brought in especially to make sure opponents don't take liberties on us? Smart thinking. Sure is a real winner attitude to have out there.

If sissy Moen was willing to engage physically and actually involve himself in the play, it would already be much better. If we had an heavyweight, it would be even better.

But hey. shh... shh... let's let the opponent run us over... don't wanna wake up their tough guys.

How can a team have any self-respect and win anything with such an attitude?

His left might have been the most feared punch in the history of the NHL.

I'll make this quick.

Leafs dress 5 nobody GOONS (that can't play hockey).
You have no choice but to at least dress White.
Mother-****ing period.
(you can't let Prust do everything...Moen and Armstrong aren't in the policeman business anymore).

Would White have prevented an injury to Pleks or an injury to Gorges...none of us have a crystal ball but you have to dress White against the Leafs. Period.

Imo, it could at least minimize the chances of a Pleks or Gorges from getting injured by a nobody GOON.

I am sure MT was planning on dressing White before the latter went ape-**** on Ott.
