Habs need a heavyweight

After watching the game against the Isles on Wednesday, it became clear to me that the Habs are in desperate need of a heavyweight fighter. It’s fine that Komisarek drops the gloves from time to time, but when he has to start going toe to toe with the likes of Chris Simon and Brendan Witt, well that’s another story. Not that I don’t think that he can hold his own with them, but if the Isles loose one of those guys to injury it’s no big lose, if the Habs loose Komi to injury, well I don’t even want to think of that. Tom Kostopulos is more of a middle weight, he can’t take on heavyweights. If the Habs do get a fighter he doesn’t have to play every game, and I’m sure that the skill guys would play with much more confidence knowing they have some muscle if need be. It seems that every team in the east beside Montreal has a “tough guy”

Carolina- ????
New Jersey-Janssen,Clarkson
Tampa Bay-Roy

So out of 15 teams in the east only 3 don’t have a legitimate tough guy.

What do you think Habs fans ???

    I agree, the Habs do need a heavyweight,  but one that can play too.  The two guys I think are great Heavyweights and underrated players are McGratton and Laraque.  These two could produce on the fourth line given a chance,  and if need be they could be sat so Higgins, Kovalev, or Koivu could be double shifted.

    Milan Lucic isn't a "Tough Guy", he's more of a pest/scorer who can fight when need be.
