I value him for his steady presence and solid performance night in and night out, but just out of curiousity - does anybody think his condition will affect his fighting and how often he drops them?
I hope that he doesn't give in to his natural urges and immediately go out and take on some tough guy just to prove he is up to the task. Hopefully CJ tells him to stick to his basic, simple style of play, eithe take the guy out at the blueline or move the guy away from the centre of the ice and then get out of the way so Tuukka can see (and stop) the shot! As others have noted Mcquaid is a highly under rated player. As folks will recall, our play off history shows that when he is out of the line up we lose!
Take care and take it easy at first Adam, I'm glad to have you back.
