Thats why a want Peluso over Thorburn. Peluso is better at every level

Before I respond, I put no real merit in toughness.

I'd have to think the Bruins (Chara, Lucic, Thornton, Campbell, Mcquaid, Ference) will hold this title for a long time.

The Leafs (Orr, Mclaren, Fraser, Phaneuf) are pretty tough too.

In the NE division it's not a bad a idea to keep one heavy hitter on the roster. Perhaps Clarkson out of NJ.

I have a friend who's a Devil fan, and he said Clarkson is like the son Lou never had, supposedly he's untouchable and will be signed back this summer. They will have plenty of money with 6 FA including Elias who could take a paycut from his 6M$.

Pretty sure Clowe will hit the Market though.

Just recall Zack Stortini playoff time and dress him as extra forward. If we face a tough team

Oh hey, yeah, the one guy who makes Cam Janssen look like a hockey player. That's genius.

Eager and Stortini are keywords that should be banned from this thread.

Stortini cannot be 'recalled' as he does not have a contract with the Habs. There's a reason no NHL team is interested in giving Stortini a contract. Any team that did do obviously wouldn't be on intent on making the playoffs. And the last thing a team that has made the playoffs would do would be to insert Stortini into their previously successful line up

ZACK STORTINI is a punching bag he sucks and if you watched hockey or followed the habs you would know that. Plus he is on an AHL contract and Montreal does NOT own his rights he is a free agent.

I'm really liking Patrick Borderleau who was suggested earlier in this thread. If we want to be generous, send one of our 3rd round draft picks for him.

How about Bergevin going to Chicago for an enforcer, I'm thinking Carcillo, can definitely play and can drop the gloves. Maybe something like:

Habs:
Carcillo

Hawks:
Weber

yeah, because the Hawks who have yet to lose in regulation this season would be crazy to not do this deal........

Moen can handle himself but he seems to have slowed down in the fighting department in the last two season whereas Thorbs still goes about 10 times a season.

I only mention this because one reporter from Montreal between periods last night had him on a list of four potential candidates or aquisition targets. Also Winnipeg and montreal's GM's worked together in Chicago and are familiar with each other.

Not saying he will step in and blow out guys but he would add toughness and play a regular 4th line shift.
I've always liked Chris Thornburn...this is the kind of player the Habs could use. He can handle some of the bigger guys and hold his own, but more importantly, he would take some of the heat off Prust

Furthermore, he can take a regular shift without hurting you...more than decent skater.

Wha?

Phaneuf? Like the guy who was scared of Prust?

Campbell? McQuaid? Ference?

a lot of "strange" names associated with "toughness".

If those guys count then we have Moen Prust White Gallagher Gorges Bourque Subban.

Carcillo is the same size as White and Prust. Far from a heavyweight.
