Do You Want A Player Like This On Your Team?

via Dan Tencer tweets,

I wouldn't be disappointed at all if MacIntyre's sole role here included a focus on skill players on any team that runs around on the Oilers

To me, heavyweight vs. heavyweight fights are predictable and don't affect the other players. Want impact? Affect the other players.

MacIntyre doesn't need to be proactive, necessarily. He just needs the other team to believe that he'll be very, very reactive. Could work.

The Oilers are going to potentially dress a 4th line of Macintyre, Eager and Brown. One deterrent might make sense, but three roster spots wasted is idiotic. No wonder Tencer is in favor.

(quickly checking to see if the Wings are in Edmonton’s division)

Nope, not even same conference. We’re good here.
