Hockey sense/IQ plays a big part too... How often have you seen Claude Giroux get crushed the way Petr Prucha would? Hardly ever. Giroux thinks the game well. He knows how to read the play out on the ice.... Parise is the same way... Not a big guy, but takes care of business on the ice even in the tough areas of the ice.
