It would be nice to have the lovechild of Derek Boogaard and Andy Bezeau in the line-up the next time we face Calgary...


who knows when that will be.

but yeah, i want retribution. and it's expected and acceptable in this game. if it doesn't come i will be disappointed.

hockey players are patient and have great memories. i doubt very much that this will be forgotten.

You should be the enforcer. You have one duty: Bash one player's head in every night. I'm sure you'd love to do that.

Not sure what you mean. See if the NHL offers 10 day contracts or something like that.

I disagree.

Winning is more fun when you don't do anything mean to the opposition at all.

That is what I call a gentleman's game.

Wow I'm not sure if your serious or not.
Please go watch soccer or something because you obviously don't know how hockey is suppose to be played.

Youre pro skill but at least youre one of the few that recognize guys like Engelland are solid players. If Bring back the bruise bros, GMR, UK or myself to name a few suggested Engelland as good as Salei people here would be all up in arms saying we overvalue fighters and that he is actually useless.

I can't speak for everyone considered an enforcer slappy, but I am in the same boat as you. I dont want some meathead playing 5 minutes a game. I want guys like Dorsett added on the 4th line in place of Miller. Or a grittier guy added in place of Hudler.

Fighters are called useless but apparent "skilled" guys like Williams or Hudler always seem to be in this line up.

Adding a young guy could solve this problem for years. Matt Martin or Dorsett or Clarkson are all guys that could be acquired, help this team in more ways then these skilled guys seem to be signed every year.

These guys would be better then someone like Miller too and Draper as well.


I think most people in here aren't against guys who can play a regular shift, contribute offensively and defensively and fight. I think the problem comes into the discussion when people start throwing around names of possible players. One of the posts in this thread said they'd want Carkner on this team and for the life of me I can't understand why. Yes, he's big and can fight. But he's also slow, a poor passer, and to me doesn't fit this team. The guy does do some things well (blocks shots etc) but I dont personally see him as an upgrade over someone like Salei at the moment. Im sure there are some on LGW that disagree and that's cool. But the point is when it's the off-season and we have roster spots to fill (say a 4th line grinder role) I don't think there is anyone in here who would argue with a signing of a player that can do everything on par with a Drew Miller but can also fight (assuming Miller couldn't be re-signed). Sure, you'll always have a couple people emotionally attached to a player and wouldnt take an upgrade but those ppl are few (hopefully).


Literally, everything has been a pleasure to watch but that pylon. Kevin Hodson holds more of a special place in Wings' lore than Lebduh.

Taking into consideration of your anti-enforcer stance - what you've posted above may appear to coincide with how you view the sport of hockey.

You have clearly never watched soccer if you think it is gentlemanly... Players dive, argue with the referee, take cheap shots etc.

Rugby (union, of course, not league) could arguably be called a gentleman's game (players leave their differences on the field and go out for beers afterwards, anyone who addresses referees the way athletes do in hockey and football would get sin-binned, etc.). That said, rugby is still full of violent, awful incidents (perhaps some of it can be attributed to the end of the amateur era in the 90s) just like any other sport. At the end of the day, one can only talk about players, not about sports or leagues.

So, at times it would be nice to have a player with a violent, physical aspect to their game in the roster, I would hate to have the kinds of players who start fights after clean hits (get it out of your system Ericsson...) and so forth.
