Big, strong, tough as nails Defense. Taking the body; Intimidating and frustrating opponents.
Think: (Pronger, Orpik, Weber, Komisarek)
Skilled, always analyzing the play, compliment their hard-nosed counterparts.
Think: (Niedermyer, Rafalski, Doughty, Whitney)
Size with skill, (Players that combine the physical game, possessing a nose for the net and great vision)
Think: (Thornton, Brown, Nash, Backes, Getzlaf, Malone, Staal etc.)
Pure offensive talent, (Players that have the ability to score goals from anywhere and create plays out of nothing.
Think: (Crosby, Parise, Iginla, Kane)
There is alot of players i left out. and no disrespect, i just wanted to add a few examples.
Canada and USA are moreso a combination of players that are Gritty, hard-working, not afraid to play in the dirty areas with Pure skilled, great vision, slick hands and speedy players.
