Whats interesting about the Sedins lack of physicality is that fact that despite almost never registering a hit, the Sedins are one of the more taxing combos to play against in the league.
They ran the LA checking line and the DD/Skud defensive pairing ragged in the series against LA. It was clear those players simply did not have the appropriate fitness level to check them over a 7 game series, and they consistently got torched in the 3rd period of games.
Obviously it was a different sorry against Chicago but their top pairing and checking line were probably the best in the conference last year.
