Kevin O on Andrew Peters

Andro gets some ink: "Amerks: Rough, tough and he knows his role"

Not only is he built like Laraque now in terms of height and weight, he's finally learned how to punch without injuring himself. I think that the boxing lessons and 23 pounds have started him on the track to being a legitimate NHL enforcer.

I wish we could have seen him in action against some real NHLers though. McGrattan and Brookbank are tough customers, but they are AHL tough guys. I think Chris Neil would have been a good test for Peters last night (but I guess he respectfully declined).

He needs to get at a gateway type guy, a middle of the road NHL tough guy, at some point this preseason. If he can convincingly win a fight like that, I think that will answer a lot of questions.

I think he needs to step up against a legit top of the line tough guy. If not that, then someone who's got that reputation if no longer the ability. Think back to Boulton making the team, he stepped up and demolished Probert. Yes, Probert was slipping, but he still had the reputation. At his size Peters has to take on everyone.

I think he's referring to the fact that Jim Bob always makes the one-line posts with a link to the latest Sabres-related article (and it is always much appreciated).

True. I have no doubt that he will be looking for any takers...whether they be other young, tough guys or the Brashears of the league.

What about Tie Domi when the team faces the Leafs? He's small, and getting up there in age, but he still has a reputation. He's been known to oblige the younger guys in the past.

Tie turns down more than he accepts now. Belak's probably a better bet in the Leaf games to dance. Same with Shelley when they play the Jackets.

Yeah Belak slipped my mind for some reason. He'd be an excellent bet as would Shelley. Good call, Chain. Both have the size that Peters has (maybe not the weight in Shelley's case) and the NHL level experience. I can't wait.

yeah, it's just that recently jb has saved me (some others i'm sure) some time looking for articles by just putting the link down.
