Yes for Gorges, No for Georges

Do the habs NEED a heavyweight enforcer? No.

Would I take a heavyweight enforcer that can also play hockey? Any day of the week.

What we don't need is another Laraque.

Moron
Doug MacLean is the most irrelevant man in hockey. I don't even think he technically works for Sportsnet, I bet the security guards just let him through cause they feel bad for the crazy old panhandler banging his fists against the glass windows screaming "I drafted Rich Nash! I. Drafted. Rick. Nash!"

Craig Button is just as bad.

As for the Prust/Phaneuf debate, all four of the knuckleheads couldn't get it through their heads that Phaneuf initiated the fight. Especially MacLean. If Phaneuf didn't want to fight Prust he just had to not initiate. Just like Prust not answering the bell on Orr or MacLaren. Instead Phaneuf said yes... maybe... no and skated away. That was the issue.

Really happy that getting a decent big fighter is part of the plan now. We know now it's just a matter of time.

I wonder what the Oilers would want for Ben Eager... not the most disciplined for sure, but he can skate at this level.

There's a Montrealer playing for the Avalanche, Patrick Bordeleau, this guy is 6 feet 6 inches, 225 lbs UFA next season...Bergevin should try to get this guy, beat most of the heavyweights including Colton Orr.

If they don't get anybody, Prust is gonna be black & blue come playoffs time. Therrien played him like crazy against the Leafs but he won't be able to do that every game. Esp. when bozos like Armstrong and Moyen don't do anything to help him out and relieve him of some of the burden. Dude needs some help fast!

I agree. I think one big body banger can only help us in the playoffs.

What the scoop with Zack Stortini? EA has this guy rated as a 6'4" 219 lbs tank who can fight and possibly play a small amount of hockey. Has anyone seen him play or know much about him? Couldn he be the Heavyweight were looking for? He's already with Hamilton its as easy as calling him up if so.

Anyone happen to have a .gif of Prust challenging Phaneuf where Phaneuf backs down and Prust laughs at him?

For the last time, Stortini is a terrible fighter and isn't even in our organization even though he plays for the Bulldogs.

Actually he can't. He's more of a hugger than a fighter.

I hope the Habs get one for the next time we face the Bruins. Bruins aren't going to take any prisoners. I'd trade White for a legit heavy like Patrick Bordeleau.

Why White? Why Moen?

We have Weber sitting in the Press Box collecting dust. And if we need a DMan to call up, we have Saint-Denis who showed he can play as well as Weber in the big show.

Let them all take 17 minute penalties. We'll play their ECHL team to wins.

Beaten up again by the Bruins. And most will only point at the scoreboard... It's time the Habs picked up a guy to deal with the Leafs and Bruins.

Tonight's game is a great example of why we can't have an enforcer that can't play decent minutes.

Chara was going to jump Emelin regardless. No one was going to stop that. He was gone for 17 minutes, we scored twice and won the game.

Bordeleau plays 5 or less most games. The guy he'd be replacing is most likely White. Not sure in the long run it benefits us.

Besides who on Boston is going to fight our enforcer? Thornton and that's it. They've all but figured out that you don't fight guys below your skill set. Lucic will fight Prust as that is a fair trade off. He won't fight Bordeleau unless something out of the ordinary happens.

Having said that it would have been nice to have someone feed McQuaid his lunch tonight.
