The Wild brought in Brad Staubitz before last season to give them a bit of bulk after losing John Scott and the late Derek Boogaard to free agency.  So far, Staubitz has been more of a checking forward and less of a thug for hire.  Sure, he dropped the gloves a few times, but he didn't seem to have anything resembling the intimidation factor of his predecessors.  He did display more hockey skill, though, and is currently slated for a spot on the Wild's fourth line with Eric Nystrom and Colton Gillies.
