Westgarth isn't a deterrent, he's like Ivanans. The other night against the wild he took a slash penalty after Clifford got rocked, instead he should of just stated throwing punches. Either way I'd rather have Clifford playing, he can atleast handle the puck.

Also ... report is John Scott is OUT for tonight and Jordan Hendry is IN
so don't get your panties in a bunch about needing an 'enforcer' tonight

- Tracey Meyers is Chicago's version of Rich Hammond btw.

That Scott is in the lineup for Chicago is a great reason to scratch Westgarth and dress someone speedy instead. Dude's an oaf.

How often do enforcers fight non enforcers? What did you expect him to do? Beat the **** out of someone half his size? It doesn't work like that.

I'd expect him to do something as our "enforcer". And the slashing penalty didn't do anything because Staubitz was still flying around like a missile the rest of the game. And as you just said Minnesota didn't even have an enforcer for that reason alone Westy should have been scratched.

Clearly you have no idea who Brad Staubitz is if you think that a) he was flying around and b) isn't an enforcer. Please don't talk about things you have no comprehension of.

Like what?

This is why enforcers have become pointless. They're not a deterrent because they can only fight other enforcers. If they try to initiate/retaliate against someone who's not an enforcer, they'll only get penalized and hurt their team.

Clearly you can't read posts above mine where Johnjm22 is stating he's not an enforcer. And Staubitz was flying around maybe should should re watch the game.

I agree with everything you said. Point is Westy should only be in the lineup if its absolutely necessary.

I would rather Westgarth take an instigator penalty and kick the **** out of someone than take a worthless slashing penalty. They both result in a PP for the other team, yet getting your ass kicked is more of a deterrent than getting your leg pads hit by a stick.

What does that have to do with anything that I said? You said Staubitz was flying around, he's one of the slower guys on Minnesota. You said he's not an enforcer, yet he has 31 fights since 08. He's a light heavyweight, but that's all that Minnesota has and so he's their enforcer.

I have a friend who can be borderline intolerable about the Hawks. If they lose it's going to be horrible. But I'll be laughing.

Going to be a tough one.

If we are getting any points tonight we must have been good, don't expect too much.
