What does he offer that makes him important to the team, because I just want to understand why we have him? I know he is there for throwing big checks and fighting, but is that all he can do for the team? I would like him more if he could play better defensively or be able to do more than just fight. Am I expecting to much from an enforcer role player to be able to do more than just fight?
I guess the big question I have is why wasn't he waived when Walker, Bartulis, and Betts were waived to lose a contract for Couturier? Also do the Flyers need an enforcer like Shelly?
I bet he is great guy off the ice and he has had some good fights with bigger opponents, but on the ice I don't like him playing for the Flyers because of his cap hit and the bad penalties he takes that gets him suspended.
