Everyone was pretty uncomfortable with the outcome of last Saturday's bout between Dave Dziurzynski and Frazer McLaren, including McLaren himself. But based on reports from TSN's Bob McKenzie, it may have inspired Ottawa Senators' GM Bryan Murray to quickly find someone besides Chris Neil or Zack Smith to drop the gloves for the team:

OTT looking for a physical player, preferably one who can drop the gloves with some authority.

This was immediately met with derision online, and some very good points were made: Specifically, the fact that the Sens have far more pressing needs than fighting right now. They need goals. But I think that ignores some realities of the team's roster today, the modern-day NHL, and the personnel currently employed in Ottawa's Northeast Division. In my mind, those realities make it reasonable--perhaps even necessary--for Murray to seek out and acquire an enforcer for the Sens, as long as the price paid to get him is minimal.
