They're not better because they have a dirty edge, they're more hated because of that.
Chara is good because he knows how to use his size to his advantage, skates very well for such a huge guy, has good vision and a bullet shot.
Lucic is the pure definition of a powerforward. He's big, aggressive, quick and has some pretty decent hands/shot. Still needs to protect the puck better around the boards, but does it well nonetheless.

Thornton is a 4th liner. His job is to fight, hit and intimidate players.

But the fact Lucic would grab someone's face from behind and drop him doesn't make him better at all.
Chara beating/punching someone unwilling to fight doesn't make him better.

They build their reputation, but their dirty edge isn't what makes them better IMO. Skill is what makes them better.
