At 6'8, 260 pounds arguably, he's a beast, and can fight, good.
Now this guy can't skate, maybe he can't pass or even shoot, he can on the other hand fight.
With Deveaux's wonky foot and lack of ability to fight the true heavies in the league, and with Hollweg riding the pine, you should think this would almost be a no brainer for Burke to pick him up. He's not going to find his "Parros" out there, since Parros can also play somewhat.
He beat Laraque, Cote, Peters already this season, with one loss coming to Godard, who is a giant killer himself. His fight card speaks for itself.
However, without the fights, he would probably be the biggest liability in the league.
He had a chance for McGrattan before he went to rehab. Leafs also passed on Josh Grattan from Philly, who is tough as nails as well, but doesn't get a lot decisions.
Peters in Buffalo doesn't play as often anymore, and with that team gettingh healthy, he might be had for cheap. His style sucks, and isn't entertaining, but he's got the size, ability to get the job done. He thinks he's a player all of a sudden.
Just a thought. But Fritz would be more of an asset then Hollweg and spotty picker Deveaux.
Any ideas on who the next "legit" heavy might be?
