Being average size there will always be players bigger than you that pretty much will have an advantage at taking you down. Choose your situations wisely and choose the right moment/move to handle the bigger guys, don't just charge in cause you are suppose to.

Of course its alot to live up to...but I think one of the best players in terms of knowing when to be physical is Datsyuk. Average size if not smaller for a NHLr, and he rarely gets taken down to the ice when hes playing physical.

Also not talkin about him just dekin, if you see he actually will go into the rough areas and take some hits and maintain control of the puck well enough to make a play. Not to mention hes taken down some pretty big guys with hits cause he times it right and puts himself in the best position to make sure they get the worst of it.

Never played at that kind of physical level, but just my thoughts on it.
