Okay, but by saying that, you're saying that's the reason to play him and give him ice time. Because he can "fight the heavies" and they supposedly can't. Right?

You all saw what happened to Sawyer.
That doesn't say anything. Concussions can happen to anyone.

EDIT: Here's the list of enforcers in the western conference skating regular shifts:

Laraque, Low, Worrell, Parker, Oliwa, Vandenbusche, Shelley, Johnson, Erskine (semi-enforcer)
That's great, but that wasn't my question, since "skating a regular shift" has nothing to do with dropping the gloves, the supposed reason for Burnett playing. I'm sure the Ducks could come up with a player or three that are capable of skating a regular shift better than Burnett. It's his pugilistic skills that earn him a roster spot.

In theory.

The old tie-down gambit cost him someplaying time.

Ok, I'll ask a variant of questions already asked

Who do you think in the NHL are "heavyweight enforcers"?
