Hopefully Admirals Short Shifts will chime in too, but here's my opinion.

They don't have to win the majority of their bouts to accomplish this, although it's a bonus.
Hugh isn't afraid to drop the gloves, but rarely does he seem to fight a team's known enforcer (typically because he doesnt play 4th line minutes). He can hold is own most of the time though.

Hugh is too slow IMO to be able to do much more than N/S play. He is definately not the stickhandling/playmaker type, but has a good shot if a teammate can get him the puck.

Doubtful, I'd hate to see him try to take on the people Wade has.

Can't comment on what he was like with Hartford/NY or at practice sessions, but he's one of a few players out on the ice before warmups shooting around getting some extra practice in.
