Here is a battle between to Tanner Glass and Cody Mcormick. McCormic got the W but he also left the ice with the side of his face caved in.

Watch Glass go after McCormick. The Pens need this kind of presence on the ice. Glass is no top-ten fighter, but he ain't Craig Adams either.

he has the size of a heavyweight but isnt in that class of a fighter. and as tocc said, he has some impressive wins over some heavyweights. (didnt he pummel gaustad his last year with us?)

englelland is always fighting guys bigger then him. does that mean he should lose to them?

when they use terms like heavyweight its more fighting class then size. for instance, tie domi was a heavyweight despite being 5'10 200 LBs

Doesn't mean he should lose, but the fact he doesn't makes him an outstanding fighter.

yes, absoulutely. engleland is a much better fighter then Rupp.

if your looking for bad fighters then guys like adams, zemlak, caufield (if your old school) are some of the worst the pens have had

Don't count on it. 2 and 3 years ago we had the toughest, meanest team in the league, and until Sid and Geno went down, we were rolling through the league. Then the debacle on the Island happened, and we turned soff

The problem is, they'd have to get rid of some bottom 6 players and I don't think we will. Sutter isn't going anywhere. Then we have Cooke, Kennedy, Adams, Vitale, Tangradi, Glass, Jeffrey. I"m sure we'll just bring back Richard Park.

there is no reason to bring in any more bottom 6 players.

It' not a coincidence that the biggest, baddest teams in the league are always at the top of the standings. As much as some people want this to be Olympic hockey, it isn't. There's a reason why the Rags, Bruins, NJ, etc are successful

Exactly. Teams that carry big bodies and scrappers do well. I'd rather have some bad-to-the-bone guys over guys like Semin and such. Hell, the Columbus Cottonmouths (SPHL) had a tough team this past year and they won it all. The year before it was the same for my Mississippi Surge. Tough teams win. The Green Bay Gamblers had one helluva tough team in the USHL and they won it all. It doesn't always translate to that, but it's usually the case.

I don't hate fighting in hockey at all. I actually enjoy it. However, I really, really don't like having one dimensional fighters in the regular lineup. I'll take a guy who is a good hockey player and is willing to drop the gloves, even if he sucks at it, over a one dimensional guy who can't play hockey but can knock guys out.

Tanner Glass will be a good grinder for the pens the one thing he lacks is fighting skills. Tanner Glass needs to stop leaving himself open for punches maybe Deryk Engelland could teach Glass how to protect himself in fights, besides that he's a decent fighter he's also switched-hand too which is always good i'm excited to see him in a pens uniform.

haha if you are really going to include them in the "big, bad" category because they have Justin Abdelkader, then I think we are fine.

Detroit is the exception. They also don't play in a division with the NY's, NJ, and Philly (who were big and tough till last year). Throw Boston, Ottawa, and now Buffalo into the schedule, and the good teams in the East are loading up on size and strength.

Adams, Jeffery and Tangradi aren't checkers or bottom line players-either through age, or style.

I'd add a couple more guys with pugnacity and toughness. I'd rather throw out two lines of bangers then have semi-skilled guys like Jeffery and Tangradi riding the pine. If those two can't crack a scoring line they are useless.
