Nope - I think Mallet is it. In 2010-11 he was Rimouski's "goon"... but then he had to go and become an offensive top 6 force for them in 2011-12!
I don't want to get too far ahead of things, but I liked what I saw.
Should be noted that he was fighting Carter Bancks who is listed at 5'10 and 165. Anything other then a total beating in that fight would be concerning.
I think it is wayyyy early to claim he is tougher then guys like Kassian, and Bieksa, guys who have fought and won against legitimate NHL scrappers.
Either way, liked what I saw from Mallet as well, that was a great hit and over all he looked quite comfortable on the ice.
