The tough part for Ivanans is that this was his first game with Calgary, and he wanted to make a good impression as their enforcer. I feel bad for him that it wound up that way.

Toughest job in sports is to go out there every night and fight the biggest, toughest guy on every team. That's the life of an NHL enforcer. I mean, how would you like to fight MacIntyre one night, and then someone like Boogaard the next night?

It'll be interesting to see how he bounces back from this.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Just another example of the uselessness of an enforcer. I hope he's alright, but did him getting ko'd really help his team in anyway except negativly?

I'm sure having that heavyweight for the Oilers was the difference right?

Maybe you should be a GM since you're so much smarter than the others.

These players wouldn't have been signed by these teams if they were useless.

Guess I should say just useless for actually winning hockey games. If I was a GM I'd definitely have an enforcer, but not because it helps my team win, but because it's entertaining as hell and sells tickets.

Hey - if Hudler were on the Flames roster intead of Ivanans he would've scored 5 goals last night.

I didn't say he was the reason they lost.

I just said he was a reason they didn't win.

Enforcers are useless for winning games. Their impact on the game is meaningless with the instigator penalty.

Hopefully MacIntyre gets a good amount of games under his belt this year. With him, Colin Fraser, Zack Stortini, Jim Vandermeer, Theo Peckham, and Jason Strudwick on that roster, nobody is gonna be pushing them around. They've got a pretty mean team this year.

Also: If they are completely useless, why does basically every team (besides us) carry at least 1 enforcer? Many teams, like Edmonton, have multiple scrappy guys.

Gorgeous fight. Good thing the dude has his helmet on at the end of the fight when his head hit the ice.

Anyone know if MacIntyre and Ivanans have a history or something?

They both spent some time in the UHL a few years back (Big Mac played for the Muskegon Fury and Ivanas played for the Rockford Ice Hogs). They had a few meetings back then. Big Mac is one of the nicest dudes off the ice. I met him a few times back when I was a season ticket holder and he always had time for the fans. Glad to see him sticking around in the NHL!
