I like how some players like Meszaros do hit, and players like Coburn/Hartnell with SLIGHTLY less hits only sometimes.
Also I edited a few for you to help you out. The posts around here are getting ridiculous.
I dont think he EXPECTS carle/Leino to hit, but was rather pointing out most of our players are not the physical type...
I actually agree (to a degree)
we have guys with a lot of heart, but not the body to hit (which im fine with...even love at times)
and then we have a few guys who can play physical b/c they are big:
Coburn (has ABSOLUTELY made physicality a part of his game)
Pronger (when he gets you on the boards/in the slot)
IMO the guys who can carry their weight more would be
what i definitely agree with is maybe we should rethink the TYPES of players we have/WANT to have.
We havent been looking for another JvR, or Carter-sized player who plays less finesse and more physical.
Im all about us getting a Tangradi or big Staal sized guy (any of them).
where are the 6'3" + guys who play like it?
I would not be opposed to us adding some size and physicality to our roster...we look like MTL at times with briere/versteeg/roo (not that roo/versteeg cant be physical, but they wont ever make as big a dent as a JvR would)
and for the record hartnell has not been delivering big hits, he has trouble skating and standing up, let alone knocking the OTHER guy down at times haha
