I don't mean it in that way.

I mean that Granato and Tocchet like this type of player. A guy who can crash and bang. A guy who will drop the gloves and score every now and then.

I don't mean it in a way that Granato and Tocchet were garbage players when they played. They were very good. I agree that if McCormick turned out anywhere near as good as either of those guys were in their careers, we'd be cooking with gas.
