Are we seeing the demise of the NHL heavyweight? Last season wasn't a good year for the heavyweight. Ivanan's career was likely ended. Boogaard passed away. Colton Orr's career is in jeopardy. A few teams are adopting the Red Wings model of speed and "turning the other cheek" as well as teams are employing enforcers that can play. Even Edmonton, who has probably the most feared enforcer in the league, went out and signed Hordichuk and Ben Eager, who at the very least can skate, albeit slowly. Are we seeing the end of the heavies?
