Nah, Douglas is more of an enforcer type

He does more fighting than anything else

Marchment had the skills but it did take him a few years to show anything. Like it was his final year with Florida before we went hmmm looks good

If Douglas plays for Arizona it will be like what O'Brien is doing or maybe at best Kassian.

My biggest issue with him is how he showed no urgency when Kallgren got hit. Took him such a long time to casually skate over and lightly shove someone. He's not doing much besides that in the first place so it's not a good look when you have the body language that standing up for your teammates is a chore.

Enforcers be weird some just go **** it every day

Others be like

I dont feel it today

Very uncharacteristic of Douglas as knowing him he would have ragdolled that guy. Either way enforcers are kind of a dying breed so meh. Clifford can do that job so were fine

every week a leafs defenseman gets injured

trading for an injury prone defenseman will protect the less injury prone defenseman from the fates.

The thing I still dont get is how the **** NYR get anything for Reaves.

Also whats with the Wild overpaying for enforcers

They give a 3rd for Deslauriers now a 5th for Reaves

Could have got Simmonds for free

Stars sent down Blumel and brought up Karlstrom. Will be nice to see what he's got. They're definitely making use of the 13th forward (12th with Gurianov hurt) this season with Peterson, Blumel, and now Karlstrom all getting a shot so far this year.
