Today the Capitals announced that they resigned Donald Brashear. I know there are those that are skeptical about the need for an enforcer in the "new" NHL, but I believe having a balanced team is absolutely necessary. Balanced, in my book, means having some tough guys on the team. Just look at Anaheim and Nashville. They are top of the list in fighting majors and also the tops in points in the league. Plus you got to love this quote.

"I make no apologies for it," Anaheim GM Brian Burke said Thursday. "That's the way our team is built. If you're going to come into our barn you better be ready for a square dance.

"We made a conscious decision to protect our skill players, provide them with an environment where they can better succeed."
