It is true.
It's not a huge concern if the players don't mind. With that said, the players would play 'tougher' with an enforcer to have their back, and I think that would increase the Wings' chances of winning (not that they can't without one). That's why I'm all for McCormick or Konopka.
If Ericsson wants to say, he can start to fight more. He's actually pretty good at it.
I'd be willing to overlook his faults if he'd play confidently and with an edge.
