1.Artyukhin isn't an enforcer. He WILL not fight toughguys on regular basis.

R2 is perfect if you want to use a roster spot on an incredible skater who will throw a huge hit every once in a while, take a ton of stupid penalties and fight non enforcers who are always several inches shorter and many pounds lighter. If you want him to be a traditional enforcer who will fight anyone then you are looking at the wrong guy.
Just look at his fight card. Outside of losing a fight against Chara it's very unimpressive.
