Ladies and gentlemen, I think we may have found something the Blades were missing this year. I give you Mike Hoffman!
Beautiful fight, right? He is a 6'5", 248 pound defenseman, and has spent most of his career in the AHL (Stats here). Too be blunt, he's an enforcer. His fight card over at hockeyfights.com is extensive. I'm sure this signing might get some fans panties buched up, but this guy is so badly needed. The big thing I noticed at the games I went to was the amount of liberties the other teams were taking. Once this big boy makes it clear that none of that crap is going to happen when he's around the other guys are going to be able to concentrate on their jobs(I do recommend this movie if you want to see how important these guys are to a team).
Also, Beckford-Tseu, and Mcflikier have been sent back down. And Steve McJannet has been put on berevement leave, I'm sure everyone's thought are with him and his family.
