Again, just because you're not a heavyweight fighter doesn't mean you're a bad enforcer. With that being said, I think we should sign an enforcer, but that isn't because we don't have good fighters - although we don't. It's because we don't have a good enforcer. I want an enforcer who can play the game as well, no matter even if he loses most of his fights. The willing to fight is more important than the actual result of the fight.

Abdelkader seems to want to take on the role a bit more, I want the wings to sign a decent middleweight over a heavyweight.

Flashes of Datsyuk knocking out Roberts come to mind.

Knocking out Roberts :lol:

Far from it - although Dats held his own in that bout, and I was impressed...Now if there was a "round 2" - I sincerely believe Dats would've been carried off on a stretcher.

Eriksson has the potential, Abs is scrappy tough call.

Yeah i would like to see Ericsson use his size and be more physical. If he really wanted to he could do some serious damage.

I say Abby for sure. Once he gets the technique down and starts ditchin the shield more, he will take on the role whole heartedly. He is definitely a s*** starter and can hold his own.

I wouldn't call any of them fighters. Ericcson ragdolled Fairy that one time, which was awesome. Eaves scrapped with Versteeg, which I liked to see... and I remember Abby getting his ass-kicked once in a fight.

I wouldn't mind a cheap 4th liner coming in for this purpose. I want Abby to step up his offensive production a bit and be somewhere around 12 or more goals.

He can do that and be the "fighter" per se too. I definitely agree, none of them have that only fight mentality. Which is fine but I love the fact that Abby will not take anyone's s***.

We have no "good" fighters and I'd be genuinely surprised to see anybody on our roster that has a convincing record on their fight card. I voted Bertuzzi because he's the guy I'd want to drop them when push comes to shove. Ericsson and others have proven that they can hold their own, but there isn't a single player on this roster that would make an opponent think twice about shedding the mitts.

I voted none of the above. They're all very non active, except Abs but he sucks at fighting. Eaves was the only guy to comfortably win a fight this season that wasn't May. I like Eaves.

Voted Ericsson, but would rather a forward be an "enforcer", and have Ericsson focus on his position.

And I'm all for an "enforcer" that can actually contribute on the PK and ES (Asham, Nystrom etc.)

Yeah, yeah, I know it was only once, but come on, was that not the best thing ever?

Also, I like Abdelkader for his fire, and I liked Miller's penalty box trash talking during the Coyotes series. I think Ericsson needs to step it up a little, but he has potential.

You all are aware that OZZIE is still a Redwing aren't you? Ask Patty Roy who kicked his ass. Of course that ******* couldn't beat anyone cept his wife.
