Labrie isn't to Shabby on the puck either, he has showed his abilities for both the Ads & Crunch. But JFJ(when healthy) has shown more consistency in the big show, but that in part comes from him having more time in the NHL(Oilers days). I'd be willing to bet if Labrie were to get 25+ or so games in back to back seasons he'd show similar potential to JFJ.
It goes back to the old school enforcer being phased out in favor of guys who can grind, forecheck, set up scoring opportunities etc.
The Bolts also have BJ Crombeen, it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out in the short season. I'd love to see Crombeen on the 3rd line and JFJ get 15 or so games on the 4th. But with Stevie Y you never know what the fu
ck he'll do!
