Gillies- Konopka- Martin is my vote for the toughest line. I don't know if the Leafs have played this line this year, but Orr- Brown- Rosehill would be very tough as well.

They havent, basically the only time Rosehill is is in is if Orr or Brown are going to miss a game. Rosehill can go with the heavies and will fight middlweights so he can fill in both roles.

I don't understand why Rosehill isn't getting any time with the Leafs this year. He's a Brian Burke player. Toronto isn't as rough and tumble as many expected them to be under Burke. Sure, Colton Orr can handle just about anyone, but typical Brian Burke teams have several guys up and down the lineup that will get their hands dirty.

Toronto has a tough team but they aren't scaring anyone like your typical Burke team for sure.

The sad part is if Rosehill got out of Toronto he would be one of the best hockey playing fighters in the league. He isn't the toughest fighter, he can handle himself against heavyweights though and he is a fast skater who can hit hard.

I would like him in Detroit, him and Abby could be a good 1,2 punch since Abby wins fights now haha

I think it is because they have Brown and Orr. Rosehill isn't as good of a player as Brown and not as good of a fighter as Orr. Therefore, he only plays when either are out.

Winchester- Crombeem- Janssen is another very tough line. While none is a top-5 HW, each can hold their own against almost anyone in the NHL.

Id love to see him here. Good to see Abdelkader not throw any punches while his visor was still on. I had a feeling someone was gonna need to answer the bell tonight.

Crombeen is one of my favourite players in the league. I would take him on the wings any day.

Yeah Abdelkader has looked like his experience is finally helping him. His balance has improved, I thought he was gonna go down like 3 times before he actually did. He didn't jump the gun and throw himself off balance with a wild punch and in the end he beat a solid established middle weight that has about 10 years of fighting experience on him.

2 years from now Abby will be a very solid middleweight fighter, just out of the NCAA he doesn't have much experience and it hurts him jumping into pros with fighting. Same with Smith, I think he has potential to go with light heavy weights when he gets some practice in, only time will tell though.

He is looking better. I remember last year he got tossed around by Morris in the playoffs and I had my doubts but it seems like his mechanics are a little better. As long as he loses the visor before he fights, I dont mind him fighting. Good to see him bounce Ott tonight. I'd like to see Ericsson scrap more but its just not looking like hes got that mean streak we've been hoping for.

Hudler to Toronto for Rosehill and a second over the summer would be a good trade IMO if Murdak and/or I. Flip are ready to produce in the NHL.

That would be a good trade for both parties, with Detroit acquiring some sandpaper and Hudler getting a fresh start in Toronto. It doesn't appear Rosehill will get much time in Toronto this season, anyway.

One of the more gritty lines in the league, indeed. Gotta be one of the best agitating lines.
